here's a recipe that uses a head of cabbage. I think you need the acidity of the tomatoes, otherwise you can always make saurkraut!

Green Tomato Relish

or (bottom of the page)
sauerkraut

Good Luck!

If you have room in the fridge, an uncut head of cabbage will last an amazingly long time. Don't wrap it, just put it in the crisper drawer. The outer leaves will dry and protect the interior. The head will last for months.

Before refrigeration, people used to pull the cabbage by the roots and hang it upside down in the root cellar. Root cellars are cool and dark and have high humidity, kinda like a crisper drawer.

I completely agree with Sparrowgrass. In fact, even cut heads of cabbage will last for an amazingly long time. While the cut edges will dry, when they're sliced off, the remaining head looks as though it was fresh from the garden & just cut. Tastes that way too. I always keep a head in the crisper drawer for additions to sautes, stirfries, salads, etc. Unbelievably sturdy stuff.

Cabbage not made in to sauerkraut does not fair well canned.

Reference: How do I can cabbage? I don't want to make sauerkraut.

I have frozen cabbage once or twice, and I really didn't like the texture when I used it. I would much rather keep the heads in the fridge and cut them as I need them.
