fresh broccoli

A friend gave me some fresh broccoli from his garden. How fresh? It was still in the ground a couple of hours ago. Sometimes we saute it in olive oil with some garlic salt, but I opted to steam this head so as not to hide the flavor. Delicious!

Chopin Broccoli :laugh:



Did you check it for little green worms :eek:

As with most produce, fresh broccoli is better than store bought. I had a nice crop of broccoli last year but this year I'm skipping my winter garden, seeing as how we don't have a winter. I'm still loaded with peppers from the summer and it's almost Thankgiving. LOL, maybe i'll stuff my turkey with jalapenos this year.

No. It was probably the cleanest looking broccoli I have ever seen. I didn't notice any when I washed it, and there weren't any worms left in the water in the bottom of the pan. If there were, it merely added some protein.:D

Has anyone ever heard that broccoli flavors bodily fluids similar to asparagus?

Huh? Oh I get it. That question will get you into more trouble than the butt hat question or the bare rug question. Ain't nobody gunna answer that! Well since I already got sucked in, I'll answer. The answer is no I haven't heard that before. But I'm sure there are more qualified sites on the subject out there than this one. Email me if you find any....... ;)

rhertz...is your mind in the gutter again???:laugh:
Everyone knows that when one eats asparagus urine takes on the hue and aroma of asparagus...gross...yes, but what were YOU thinking?:laugh:

Morpheus 11-19-2007 06:54 PM

I was actually talking about urine, yes, but rhertz raises a interesting question. rhertz, are you a man of science?

The ability to smell asparagus in your pee is genetic. Some people can, some people can't. It's not universal.

I was hoping you and Mrs. Hertz might undertake a little experiment, should she be so genetically inclined!
