Jurassic cabbage help!

I got a 6 1/2 lb. cabbage in the CSA today -- seriously, it's the size of a basketball. Any favorite recipes that use up large amounts of the stuff?

Krautfleckerln, a Central European recipe for cabbage and noodles is very easy and good--and seasonal. See recipe at http://www.saveur.com/article...
You can also make sauerkraut, which will preserve the cabbage for later use.

I shred the large heads, use some right away and freeze the rest. My go to is a South Indian style stir Fry.- In a large wok, heat up 2-3 Tbsp of oil and add a teaspoon each of black mustard seeds and cumin along with 1 red arbol chili - broken into 2 - (add in some curry leaves if you have any). once the mustard sputters toss in a cup of frozen peas (or a mix with carrots) along with 2 cups of the shredded cabbage, sprinkle some turmeric powder and salt and stir fry it on high until the frozen veggies are cooked.

Panfusine, do you process the shredded cabbage in any way before freezing it? Blanch, steam?

Must be a lot of big cabbages in CSA boxes this fall--here's a Hotline discussion from a month ago, asking what to do with a beachball-sized cabbage https://food52.com/hotline...

That was mine! I ended up doing a lot with it. Kimchi, sauerkraut, caramelized cabbage( freezes and defrosts great!), cabbage soup, cabbage and noodles. I ended up with a couple of really large ones.
PS turkey Rubens with homemade sauerkraut and homemade Russian dressing is a new post thanksgiving tradition!!!!

This is a great recipe for a cabbage Kulebiaka: http://www.centre-consul...

I made one last year, and it was really good. It takes a bit of time to get the ingredients together, but the presentation is lovely, the recipe uses lots of cabbage, and it tastes good.

Thanks so much - these are awesome ideas! Kimhw, when you say caramelized cabbage, do you mean you sliced it thin and slow-cooked it on the stovetop, or something else?
