My chinese cabbages are huge and delicious. the cabbage I harvested today weighed in at 2.2 pounds.  First I found a recipe for Kimchi and started that. Then I decided to freeze the rest.

 1.25 pounds of chinese cabbage makes approximately one quart of cooked greens.

  1. Put on a 1.25 gallons of water to boil.
  2. Was  1.25 pounds of chinese cabbage.
  3. Cut  in 2 inch strips.
  4. Fill sink with cold water and ice cubes.
  5. Dump cut greens in boiling water, stir and boil for 1.5 minutes.
  6. Take greens out of pot with tongs and/or slotted spoon.
  7. Put hot greens in sink and swish around for 1.5 minutes.
  8. Take greens out of water.
  9. Mark freezer bag with date and type of greens.
  10. Drain any excess water from greens and bag.
  11. Get any excess air out of bag and freeze
