Just Picked Cauliflower:not what you'd expect

I've never considered cauliflower a mainstream vegetable, and the rubbery tasting thing I've bought a couple of times at the grocery store over the years had confirmed my suspicions. So I hope those of you who have never tasted cauliflower that was just harvested that morning will at least give it a try before tossing it into the trade-in-basket. Hey! This is good stuff! I just discovered an unusual combination that I've been enjoying. Try crumbling your cauli with a little bit of pure crumbled blue cheese. Actually the cheese and the vegetable look really attractive together as a topping on your salad. The combo is startling good. Of course you can steam it like you might brocolli, but just picked cauliflower is delicious, raw!

OMG, all you Costa Mesa CSA members can just put your unwanted cauliflower directly in my basket! I admit to getting a little overwhelmed by the broccoli, but that has not happened with the cauliflower. The blue cheese sounds like a great idea!

another thing you can do with it is steam it until it's kind of soft, and then mash it like potatoes. It's then good with a little milk and cheese mixed in.

Lately I've been very lazy, and just cut up the carrots and cauliflower and poured Trader Joe's Indian-style simmer sauce over it and cooked slowly. Great with rice or pasta!

Finally, these blood oranges are GREAT! What a treat - keep 'em coming.
