Broccoli

About Me: Broccoli is a cool-weather crop, available only in the spring or fall. It is a member of the brassica family. Broccoli is a good source of vitamin C, A, folate, calcium, iron, and other minerals. Broccoli can be eaten raw with a tasty dip, sautéed, thrown on a pizza, or baked in a casserole. Do not discard the stems or leaves from a broccoli plant because they are perfectly edible and nutritious! See 'Broccoli Leaves' section for cooking tips. 

To store: Broccoli should be stored in a cotton mesh bag, or paper towel, and then placed inside a bag or container inside your fridge crisper. Store for at least a week.

To freeze: Blanch washed florets, chopped stems, or greens for 2-3 minutes. Rinse in cold water to stop the cooking process, drain, and pack into airtight containers, or vacuum seal and freeze.
