We have been getting so much broccoli in our share that they gave us a little tip in our weekly newsletter on how to store it. With our vacation coming right up and having a grandma coming who cant eat broccoli, I figured what better time to get it done. I mean, I have tons of time to add xtra things on my to do list now, right?!
It was so simple. Granted, Im not sure how it will hold its texture and firmness after being frozen, but thats okay. Its worth a try. I can always make soup!
Heres how much I started with. Virtually, a sink full. That is 2 shares worth of broccoli.
You then cut it into 1 inch pieces. Add the pieces to some boiling water and cook for appx 2-4 min.
Remove from boiling water and plunge into ice water for 5 minutes.
Drain and let cool till all broccoli is cool to the touch.
Put in freezer bags and store!
