    my sons garden has the best cabbage ready now, so sweet and young. I had heard somewhere that you could "wilt" cabbage for rolls in the micro...called the girl and she wasn't home. SO I wrapped the whole head after taking out the core in seran wrap and put it in the micro for 6 min. OH MY, the head just fell apart. Couldn't believe it, had those cabbage rolls all done without having to boil water etc to roll. They were so good.... :thumbup:

    Good idea. Heard you could freeze the whole cabbage, too.

    this is the way I make them,

    1 can tomato soup + 1/2 can water
    1 can chopped tomators with seasonings
    mix together

    mix 1 # hamburger, 1 egg and 1 package of rice mix (chicken, beef, mexican etc.) I use mexican. Add about 1 cup of the tomato mixture and mix thoroughly. I put the cabbage after taking it from the micro and put it in the sink and run cold water over it so I can handle it. I put a layer of tomato mixture and cut up cabbage I can't use to roll in the bottom of my slow cooker...put rolled cabbage on top and put the rest of the tomato on top. about 4 hours on high and no HOT kitchen :thumbup:

    Aside from the Plastic Wrap in the microwave, this sounds delicious. As a nation we don't eat enough of good foods that don't come in packages.

    I used to freeze stuff like this, and a Greek friend makes some mouth watering grape leaf stuffed rolls. I'll bet they would freeze nicely too.

    I love cabbage rolls but never make them because of the hassle of getting the cabbage ready. This micro tip takes care of that. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    Thanks I'm waiting for decent sized heads to make and freeze 'Pigs in a Blanket' but at 97+temps wasn't looking forward to all that boiling water..The only things I use the micro-wave for is Corn on the cob and to reheat left-overs

    Great idea for the cabbage. One suggestion though, since saran wrap can leach harmful chemicals onto your food while microwaving, is to put the cabbage into a bowl cover with a saucer or plate then microwave.

    would work too...the saran just held in the moisture...

    Thanks for the tip. I love cabbage rolls but don't like the nuisance of wilting the leaves in a pot of boiling water. This sounds so much easier.

    Thank you. How about wet paper towel? So true about chemicals on any kind of plastics, I hear.

    I made them using the micro for yrs,till a neighbor told me to freeze the head of cabbage.
    Works great.I just put it in freezer the day before,remove from freezer the next morn & as it thaws,it gets limp.Just cut off the leaves you need & stuff.
