From p. 402 of the Complete Tightwad Gazette---"Many of us either throw the stems of broccoli away or selflessly suffer through eating them .... peeling the stems will make them amazingly tender."
Yes, I'm ashamed to admit that I'm one that mostly threw away those big thicks stalks. Without a 2nd thought. Just too tough & thick for our tastes. Last night we had roasted broccoli for dinner. I tried peeling the stalks w/my potato peeler. Way too thin. So I sliced them up just a bit thicker than the peeler did. This worked great and the stalks were as delicious & tender as the flowerettes! We're having broccoli again tonight, cooked in the microwave. I'll be using this tip again and hoping to get the same tender results.
Will you be able to use this tip? Or have you found another tip you'll be implementing this week?
