• Cauliflower Florets

Cauliflower belongs to the Cabbage family, but most closely resembles broccoli, a distant cousin. Only the head of the cauliflower should be eaten, a part known as the white curd.

Care & Handling

Selection: 

Cauliflower should have creamy white, compact curds (the head) with bright green, firmly attached leaves. Some small leaves extending through curds do not affect quality.

Storage: 

Store cauliflower in its wrapping in the crisper section of refrigerator and use within three to five days of purchase.

Preparation: 

Unwrap head and rinse well or submerge in cold water; drain well. Trim stalk off close to base of head; trim leaves. Leave whole, or break or cut into florets.
