The Difference in Cooking Fresh and Frozen Vegetables

Lovers of Brussels sprouts can use it both fresh and frozen. To keep the cabbage in the refrigerator, it is best to wrap it in paper, as the vegetables are spoiled by excess moisture. If you decide to freeze, then just cut off all the heads of cabbage from the stem, rinse, dry well and put in the freezer. It is better to do it in portions.

The only difference is that fresh cabbage is recommended to be thrown into boiling water, and frozen cabbage should be immediately filled with water and boiled.
