How many cups of cabbage is a 12 oz bag?

Anyone know how many cups of shredded cabbage is in a 12 oz bag? I have shredded cabbage, but no scale.

      Have a measuring cup, but don't know how many cups are a 12 oz. bag . I'm assuming 11/2 cups is not a 12 oz bag of shredded cabbage. Correct me if I'm wrong.

        Am I missing something? If you have a 12 oz. bag of anything, and you want to know how many cups it contains, measure it.

          I have fresh shredded cabbage from my own cabbage. I need 12 oz for a recipe. How much shredded cabbage should I use?

    2. Hard to say, since how tightly it is packed makes a difference. Hang a coat hanger from a kitchen cabinet. Using a clothespin, on one end hang a 12 oz bag of anything you have, or something like a 12 oz can or two small cans of tomato paste in a ziploc bag, then hang another ziploc with shredded cabbage on the other end and add/subtract till they look level. You'll be quite close to 12 oz.

        Sound like fun:)
        I guess I'll just eyeball it and adjust taste as needed .
