Quality Assurance/Handling

Selecting your Broccoli

Make sure that when you pick up broccoli in your local market, you pick those in bright green color with a tint of purple on the edge. The florets should be firm. If they look wilted or yellowish-green, or enlarged, they are not fresh.

Storing your Broccoli

You can store your fresh broccoli in the crisper drawer in the fridge until you are ready to use.  Broccoli should keep fairly well up to 5 days . Anything more than that will make your vegetable lose its important nutrients.  Wash your broccoli before preparing.
