I've worked in a soup kitchen serving 300-400 people and we always soaked our veggies in a vinegar water solution--the acid content should take of any worms that you might be afraid of. I f nothing else consider it a type of pickled sushi--just kidding!!

I grew up in Manila where the brocolli from the market always had worms. I remember my mom telling me that one should always clean brocolli very well and to always expect worms. She would clean up the brocolli (she could never bring me to do that) but still sometimes you'd see those extra 'green protein units' in the food which would totally gross me out. That's why I learned to be wary of brocolli growing up.

I was travelling in the U.S. about ten years ago when I asked my American host about whether brocolli in the States had worms in them. My host gave me a look, paused, and said that if that were so, the entire supermarket would have been closed down!

That was the only time I learned that brocolli didn't necessarily come with worms!!!

are you all concrete dwellers? have none of you planted an organic garden?
if you're a true foodie, you owe it to yourself to grow at least one garden, and dispatch/clean at least one animal, just to get a perspective, and maybe some appreciation for the gestalt of it.

you'd be amazed at the buggies that infest a garden that avoids pesticides.

if you do the soaking in a sink full of cold water trick, you'll be able to remove 99.99% of the dirt and bugs. just give everything a good soak. even squiggly things need to breathe.

oh, and i've seen 4 immature and 2 adult preying mantises so far this year, having to carefully move one from my son's wagon back to the garden. also, have lots of ladybugs. put a few on my son's arm, which he thought was cool.

*shudders* Even if I know it's somewhat irrational, the thought of worms in my food grosses me out!

Wise words bucky


After all these years, cabbage worms still gross me out. But with timely and frequent applications of BT/Dipel/bacillus thuringiensis, I usually am able to bring my cabbage family veggies to the house without the extra protein lurking in the buds.
