cauliflower on acid


this week's CSA gave us a Romanesco cauliflower. it's almost too beautiful to eat...but i will. i've been doing some research on the web to see if there are any standout recipes for this lil psychedelic delight. it appears it can be used as any other cauli would, roasting is particularly good. apparently it has a nutty, sweeter flavor than the standard variety. i would actually love to grow these as ornamental plants. so damn beautiful!

I am still harvesting these beautiful fractal romanescos out of our garden. We had so many we made pickles... delicious eye candy!

did they get many aphids like broccoli and cauli can attract?
