cauliflower

Not all cauliflower is white! Try purple and orange cauliflower too (they lose their color when cooked!).

How to Select

Choose cauliflower with compact, creamy white curds and bright green, firmly attached leaves. Avoid brown spots or loose sections that are spread out.

How to Store

Refrigerate cauliflower in a plastic bag up to 5 days.

How to Prepare

Trim off brown spots. Rinse with cold water. Remove leaves. Turn upside down, cut stem where florets are joined and separate. Eat raw: Add to salads, or have as a snack with dip. Eat cooked: Boil, steam, or saut. Add to casseroles, egg dishes, soups, stews, and pasta dishes.
