    I would have never thought of that.

    It's an idea but not if you are in a hurry. The boiling water only takes
    a minute or two.

    Or nuke it in a covered casserole with some water.

    No hurry, just throw it in the freezer the night before you are going
    to make the stuffed cabbage leaves.
    Easy peasy.

    Then it has to thaw out.

    I use the boiling water method. The cabbage leaves get too watery and
    mushy when you freeze them. You're basically bursting all the cells
    in the leaves leaving you with a water and cellulose cocktail.
    Dipping the head in boiling water works much better - especially if
    you use savoy cabbage - that stuff is a dream to work with for
    stuffing cabbage.

    I've never heard of that before. If I ever get enough room in my
    freezer to try that at a time I need to peel off cabbage leaves for
    some reason, I'm going to try it!

    Whatever works best for you, I think. I partially core a head of
    cabbage, cutting a cone shape. Then I stick a cooking fork in it and
    dunk it in boiling water, removing the leaves as they loosen. It's
    harder to describe than to do.

    You must have very strong wrists, or work on very small cabbages.

    I like a cabbage with about a 6-7" diameter for holubky.

    I'll describe it for you. It's like pieces of bacon peeling off
    the slab one by one as the heat gets to them. I have never made
    stuffed cabbage but have had it many times. I often wondered about
    how difficult it would be to roll cabbage leaves. I've made stuff
    grape leaves many times. I think the freezing method and your method
    both sound good. In a day or so I'll be getting a new used stove from
    the landlord. I've gone 2 decades without using the stove - except
    for quick broiling of chicken breasts or pork chops - because it
    smokes so much it sets of the fire alarm. Soon I'll be making things
    I never made before. The combination of the cabbage leaves thread and
    my soon to arrive stove caused me to post this. By the way, I'm
    assuming from memory that cabbage leaves are usually made in the
    oven. Maybe not always, but usually. On the other hand, stuffed are
    made on the stove top, 25 minutes or so max. I'm looking forward to
    making things I've never made before.
