Cauliflower does not grow well here. The climate is much too hot. Cauliflower is available for purchase, imported all the way from South Africa. Thus, the cost is astronomical! We are talking about $25 for a small head that requires a lot of preparation and not a lot of yield. Kevin recently traveled to Lubumbashi (southeastern part of Democratic Republic of the Congo) for work and was able to purchase a bunch of cauliflower for much cheaper than we could purchase it here. So I decided to show you what it requires to prepare "organic" cauliflower and why it is NOT worth $25 a head.
Here is our lovely cauliflower. This head it in great shape.
First, you cut it down into manageable pieces.
Then, you must shave off the damaged pieces that have mold.cabbage worms.
After cooking, you strain and bag. Here is the final product ready to freeze for later.
