Cabbage Head

Someone gave me a cabbage the size of my head. But I'm smarter.

Butter Baked Cabbage
From Adam Liaw

Butter, melted

Pre-heat oven to 425.

Bring water to boil in a large stock pot.

Wash cabbage and remove the least amount of outer leaves necessary. Quarter cabbage leaving the core intact. Place in boiling water and boil for 8 min. Drain well.

Place cabbage in greased casserole dish. Pour melted butter generously over cabbage. Salt liberally. Bake in pre-heated hot oven until the tips of the cabbage caramelize and turn brown. I baked mine for 45 min.

For my huge cabbage I needed 2 stock pots to boil them, 2-3 sticks of butter and a very large baking dish (14x10.5).

Another technique: My SIL, when baking cabbage, simply cuts the core out, places a stick of butter in the hole and bakes it.

I came here to read about bread, and all I got was cabbage. What's that all about?

It's a dirty trick. But now that you are here and want to talk bread, can I have your Cuban bread recipe? Ok actually I may not be smarter than cabbage as I clicked the wrong button when my post wasn't ready.
