Full Answer

To freeze cooked cabbage, cool the cabbage in ice water immediately after it is cooked. Drain the cabbage, and put it in a freezer-safe container. If possible, use a vacuum food saver. This is the best way to prevent freezer burn as residual air is the main reason that frozen food spoils over time.
