Cauliflower


General Information

Cauliflower is the often-neglected cousin of broccoli. I find it easier to digest and like the firm texture better than broccoli. It grows best in cool weather - so we grow it as a fall crop.


Storage Information

Cauliflower stores great wrapped in plastic in your refrigerator. Don't remove the green wrapper leaves before storage as they help lengthen storage. It will be usable for a couple of weeks.


Cooking Suggestions

  • Cut into florets for most recipes. Don't over cook. Be careful that it doesn't get mushy, but stays firm and has a slight crunch.
  • Try replacing cauliflower for broccoli in a favorite recipe.
  • Tastes great raw.
  • Steam lightly (5-10 minutes) and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and a little lemon juice.
  • Add to soups, stews and stir-fries.
