Week #20 Note from Farmer Update — How to freeze Cauliflower

Dear CSA Members, 
Below is your update for tomorrow.  We had to exchange the Lacinato Kale for extra Cauliflower this because the Cauliflower harvest was so abundant!  Once the cauliflower is ready it all has to be harvested or it will go bad.  We are very excited to share this bounty with our CSA members!  Enjoy!
Want to Freeze Cauliflower?  Below are directions!

-Heat a large pot of salted water to a boil.  In a large bowl, fill with half ice and water.

-Cut up the veggies while you wait for the water to boil.  Carefully, add in vegetables and cook for 1 to 1 1/2 minutes, only until they’re slightly cooked through and tender.

-To test, remove a piece with a slotted spoon, dip it into the ice bath to cool quickly, then eat it.  If the test is good then scoop out vegetables quickly and immediately move to the ice bath.

-Keep the vegetables in the ice bath just until they’ve cooled, about 20 to 30 seconds.  Remove vegetables, drain in a colander, and set aside until ready to freeze.

Best,
Candice
