Cauliflower Knowledge

  • Most common is white, but purple, green, and even yellow varieties are available.
  • Why is it called cauliflower? Because it’s actually a flower that hasn’t yet developed.
  • Has a neutral taste so it can take on a lot of different flavors.
  • Available pretty much year round. Most come from California where it can grow 10 mo. yearly.
  • Orange cauliflower is also dubbed “cheddar” cauliflower, though it tastes nothing like cheese. Its flavor is mild, slightly sweet, and creamy. Purple cauliflower is mild and slightly sweet with nutty nuances.

Cauliflower Tips
