*or substitute 3/4 teaspoon table salt
For a large cabbage it will best to split between 2 baking sheets.
If using 2 baking sheets for more cabbage, increase butter by 1-2 tablespoons and use more salt and pepper to thoroughly season cabbage.
Leave all the outer leaves on sheet even if they fall away from the main slice. Those are the best bits that get tender and browned!
The thinner the slices the more tender the cabbage will be. It will also cook quicker.
