Freezing Red Cabbage?

Jacksonville, FL(Zone 9a)

Our garden has had such a bumper crop of red cabbage that the neighbors all run when they see me coming with more heads to try to give them. :-)

Seriously, is there any way to freeze it and have it remain decent, either cooked or uncooked? Would you blanche it first or cook completely? I have never tried this and hate to put a lot of work into something that may be awful. I do not want to can or pickle this year, just freeze.

Next year I will not get carried away at planting time. Thanks in advance.

I would blanch, rinse in cold water, drain, and then freeze.
May not be super crispy but still good.

Thanks so much. I am off to thin the crops.
