Broccoli

Background Information:
Broccoli is available December through April. Depending on the weather and insects this is always subject to change.

Basic Cooking Strategies:
Blanch in boiling water for 3-4 minutes, then plunge in ice water to stop the cooking process. To serve, heat slowly in butter with herbs and garlic. Alternatively, cook in a sauté pan over high heat with crushed garlic and butter for 1-2 minutes, add liquid (water, stock or white wine). Cover and cook until done, 3-4 minutes.
Broccoli can also be roasted and eaten raw, make sure to use all of the leaves and stems. If desired peel the stems with a peeler to remove the fibrous outer layer.

Storage Information:
Eat within 4-5 days for optimum freshness. Blanched broccoli can be drained and frozen for use later.
