    Remove cabbage to a rimmed baking sheet, keeping water in the pot. Cool.Remove leaves from cabbage, cutting away from the core with a small knife. Set aside the best 16 unbroken leaves and cut off the thick spine in the center for easier rolling. Set all remaining cabbage leaves aside. (If the core is too firm, return it to boiling water for a few minutes to soften)
