Forgive me if you know this already. I'm a bit slow some days.
It took many a stinky-cabbage-cooking days to finally learn to freeze and thaw out cabbage to make galobki. (Thank you Kasia!)
And last week I realized how to cut off the thick spine of the leaf easily!
Because the leaf is curved, it sits nicely in the edge of the counter. The spine is exposed and can be cut off without putting holes in the leaf.
See, even when I'm one handed taking a picture, it is easy!
Now we have a flat, more flexible leaf ready to roll up some yumminess!
