Blanching cabbage leaves

Need blanched cabbage leaves for a recipe? There is a method that is easier than cutting out the core and separating the leaves prior to their water bath.

1. After trimming the core of the cabbage by about one inch, she screws a corkscrew into the core.

2. The corkscrew acts as a handle by which you can grasp (using a pot holder) the head of cabbage and lowers it into a pot of boiling water for a few seconds at a time.

3. When the outer leaves are softened, pull the head out of the water and trim off the blanched leaves with a pair of tongs. Repeat the process as many times as necessary to get the number of blanched leaves you need.
