Cauliflower enjoys popularity year round thanks to the availability of high quality heads of the silky white vegetable, and the nearly infinite ways it can be prepared. Excellent raw, it is often served with other
crudités as an appetizer. Cauliflower can be found in salads in both raw and blanched form. When steamed or boiled it tenderizes nicely and an excellent puree can be produced. Cauliflower soup is very popular, especially during the
fall and holiday season. The puree is sometimes used as a thickening agent for other soups.
The leaves of the plant wrap themselves tightly around the head, blocking the sun’s rays and keeping the head bright white in color. Select heads that are white with few blemishes and look for leaves that are moist and not wilting.
Little brown spots appear on the head as it ages. Store in the refrigerator, loosely wrapped. Use within a few days, or it will begin to soften.
