8. Wash The Cabbage

Fill the bowl containing the cabbage with water.
Don't fill the bowl with water at the top to prevent the cabbage from falling down into the sink.
If there is too much cabbage in the bowl, place some cabbage in another bowl to wash the cabbage easier.
Using one or both hands, pick up some cabbage and then drop the cabbage back into the water. Repeat about three to five times.
Using the pick up and drop technique, water is being moved around the bowl. The power of the moving water removes the dirt from the cabbage.
Place the clean cabbage into a caldron (right side of photo).
Repeat to clean all the cabbage.
The dirt removed from the cabbage are on the bottom of the bowl.
Repeat the cleaning process again for a second time. If the cabbage is really dirty, wash three times.
Suggestion: Use a taller bowl or pot to clean the cabbage because the taller height better separates the cabbage and the dirt settling on the bottom.
