The harvest is coming in! This is the first time I have had enough broccoli to save. It may not be much but it is more than I care to eat in one sitting!
First step is to cut the heads up and remove all the leaves. Rinse well. I think a water rinse is fine. If it doesn't come off during the rinse it will definitely come off when you boil it.
Next step is to blanch for three minutes. Blanch translates to boil or cook slightly. Make sure you stick to the three minutes.
Lastly, transfer to your freezer bags and label with the date and contents!
