Broccoli Tips

  • Keep your Broccoli refrigerated right up until you’re ready to eat it.
  • Select Broccoli that has tight beads on the crown, is firm and has fresh, green cut ends.
  • Avoid Broccoli that has a strong odor or is flabby and limp.
  • Make it convenient for yourself. Cut your Broccoli into florets as soon as you buy it and store it in plastic baggies or small tubs on an eye-level shelf in your fridge. With the prep work already done it will be ready to enjoy. With it highly visible, you’ll be more likely to eat more of it more often!
  • Stems? You don’t need to throw those Broccoli stems in the trash or composter. You can julienne cut them for Broccoli Slaw or to add to a stir-fry or pasta.
