Broccoli

vegetable

Growing:

Start seeds indoors 2 months before last frost date, or obtain young plants for direct planting in the garden. A few weeks before the last frost date transplant about 1½ feet apart. Harvest the broccoli heads as soon as they are big enough to use and before there is evidence of flowering (yellow). Cut 5-10 inches down on the stalk to harvest.

Selecting & Storing:

Broccoli should be dark green with perhaps a hint of blue/purple. Stalks should be quite firm, and clusters should be tight and closed. Store in an open bag in the crisper of the refrigerator up to several days. If the broccoli looses firmness, it will be better used cooked, rather than raw.

Basic Preparation:

Wash broccoli under cold water, cut off stalk/stem, and cut the heads/clusters into desired sized pieces.

Raw: Use on a veggy tray with dip or in salads

Steam: Put broccoli in a microwave-safe container with an inch of water in the bottom and microwave for 5-7 minutes (depending on strength of microwave). Broccoli should be tender, but not soft.
