Overripe Cauliflower?

swtbttrfly23July 21, 2013

This is my first year growing cauli and I read that if they go too long they over-mature. Well, I think mine did just that. The florets are seprated. Is there any recipe that makes use of these or are they un-useable? It still seems a shame to waste them...

If they have not turned brown, you can use them. Probably best in cooked dishes like soups, casseroles, baked dishes. They tend to get a bit tough and strong tasting for using raw with dip.

Nope, not brown! I was thinking of pickling some of them (making a giardinaire) and then puree some into a nice soup. Thanks for your help!
