Cauliflower Storage


Cauliflower is at an excellent price in my area right now.  The store literally had B1G1 on large heads.  I knew I didn't have room for much, but thought I would at least bring home 2 heads of cauliflower.  Being down to cooking for two people most of the week and only three on weekends means that a head makes two good side dishes. 

Cauliflower is easy to prep to freeze.  Wash, check for bugs, and cut into pieces.  I go about 1 inch or so in size.  At this point some people do soak it briefly in a salt water bath.  I do not want the extra salt and do not do this.

Blanch for 3 minutes and cool immediately in iced water.

Seal and freeze.

My bags are pretty large and I will be able to either serve this as a side dish, base for a casserole,  or as a mashed topping for a shepherdess pie.
