Cutting the core out of a cabbage is pretty easy. But you can also make it hard on yourself by trying to do it the same way you’d cut the stem out of a tomato. Cabbages are too big and too firm to do that. Here’s the easy way.
Cut the stem off the cabbage head.
Cut in half through the stem …
… then in half again through the stem.
Now you’ve got a wedge with the core at one end.
Slice the core out.
And that’s it.
