- For best results, use a blender and not a food processor to blend the cabbage, to ensure it is completely pureed.
- When you squeeze out the blended cabbage with the cheesecloth, squeeze out as much as you can to prevent the cabbage fufu from being too soft.
- To preserve your cheesecloth, soak it in a little dishwashing liquid for a few minutes, hand wash gently and rinse thoroughly. Leave out to dry.
