    How long do you cook it? Do you have a recipe?

    I blanch broccoli for about 2 minutes in boiling salted water and
    then flash chill it in a bowl of cold water with ice.

    It leaves it bright green and very crisp-tender. I do a bunch that
    way and keep it in the fridge for a few days
    and take whatever I need for a meal out and put it in a hot pan with
    some butter and seasoning and toss it
    to get it hot. Doesn't need any more cooking, just heating up and
    seasoning.

    Here's my methodology for blanching green vegetables. Works like a
    charm.

    Thanks. I try to steam for about 3:45 but I forgot the timer with the
    broccoli-- had to through it out. Had the texture of lunch school steam
    table vegetables... blanching. hmmm.

    What? Not enough control over the newsgroup for you? Why don't YOU move
    to a moderated forum. You'll be so much happier there. Better yet,
    become a moderator. Wow! That'll really float your boat, won't it?

    Great idea. Moderating a site would be ideal for Mary. She could smack
    her wooden ruler on the desk every time she nixed a post. BAM! No post
    for you!

    [jumping the killfile]

    What's your definition of freedom, Moosefake? Free to believe that any
    voluntary respect-based system of organization is just an invitation to be
    an asshole?

    Yeah, that's it right there, in a nutshell.

    > free from posting anything interesting.


    Says the fake cook who can't even open a can of soup without needing
    stitches or boil water without sustaining third degree burns.

    Now run along and hook up with your troll buddies. Be sure to bring full
    body condoms.

    Steaming in microwave works well for me. I use the old corning ware glass
    top of various sizes.

    To me, microwaving of most vegetables doesn't taste the same, or have the
    same texture. I used to, but no more.

    I like broccoli either raw in salads or stir fried with sauce.

    But not stir fried in salads or raw with sauce. Interesting.

    I steam mine for 13 min.

    ---

    That seems like a long time. Must be on low heat? I usually do it on high
    heat for 3 minutes and let sit a couple minutes... Now I feel like making
    some broccoli. If I do, I'll set the timer so I don't overcook or fall
    asleep.
