      Bruce is right about raw cauliflower…broken into small florets which are then hand dipped into your favorite dipping sauce—cheesy, pungent, or savory etc..—they make great nibbles!

        This year – in real life – I am “doing” one new recipe every week or two weeks. It has to be something I’ve never done before. Last night it was Polish Pierogi. It turned out quite well. I shall use the raw cauliflower for nibbles when I come to making some exotic dipping sauce.

      The cauliflower in fact was large enough for several recipes! The photo doesn’t show it but is was almost 18 inches across. The trouble was, I had eleven other cauliflowers the same size at the same time!

    Congratulations Mr Goodman. That is a very fine cauliflower. Never found them easy to grow and never managed one anything like as good as that. Or as musical!

      I thought I was pretty good growing them like that, and then EVERYONE in the “New Zealand Gardener” magazine wrote in that year about their enormous caulis! It must’ve been the weather!

    By the way, Bruce, today is Groundhog day, here in the States, and I just heard that Punxatawny Phil, The Groundhog, did not see his shadow when he emerged. That means it will be an early spring here!

      I hope it doesn’t mean we’ll have an early autumn. We’re certainly having a late summer – yesterday was our first hot day. Today is the same. Schools went back yesterday – on the presumption that summer is over.

    When you have that much cauliflower, other than snacking, dipping and currying, you can also pickle it. It’s FABULOUS pickled. And, just to repeat myself, the music makes this a very confident cauliflower, which of course it was, being 18 inches and part of a large family.

    And a fine cauliflower it is! I love, love cauliflower – raw in a salad, steamed, mashed, grilled anyway you want it! If my husband would agree, I’d have a picture like this over the bed.
