I haven't tried the purple or the yellowish-orange cauliflower yet. They are hard to find in my area. Have seen them down in Phoenix when I visit my daughters. Broccoflower is good but not as good as cauliflower, IMO. Love the color for a veggie relish tray though!!

OK, pickles. I do eat pickled cauliflower. Mom and dad used to put up gallons of home made pickled vegetables every fall - green tomatos, carrots, cauliflower, green peppers, etc. We couldn't wait until Thanksgiving to open the first bottle. The pickled cauliflower was one of my favorites. It had the best crunch and did not taste of cauliflower at all.

I get the point Andy. I was only posting a cauliflower recipe.

That wasn't meant to be nasty. It was my attempt at making a point with humor. I apologize if it offended you.

Please don't take me wrong here, I do not consider my cooking as a "can bottle and jar" kind of cook But with Cauliflower I like it steamed then heat a can of Campbell's Cheddar Cheese soup straight out of the can and pour it over the top. Q&E

We found this when we were doing the South Beach diet and actually had a microwave. Not so anymore and we really miss this dish...

Head of cauliflower - stem removed.
Place in microwave safe bowl and add water until about 1/4 of the way up the head.
In a bowl, mix together 1 cup mayonaise, a good portion of mustard (either yellow or dijon) and horseradish.
Smear mixture over head of cauliflower, cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 8 - 10 minutes or until fork tender to the core. The topping will brown slightly ...

oh so good!
:)

Oh! I'm not sure if it was mentioned or not but soup!! There are a ton of good recipes out there ... we use the one from the "Joy of Cooking" and add shredded cheddar to the tops when served. Perfect for a cold day!

No worries,I am sorry too, I probably took it without humour after a night of not much sleep with my son up all night coughing a lot that he could'nt sleep much. Not a good excuse really. Anyway, Friends?!I do hope so Andy M.I would cook you a great meal without cauliflower to make up if you were in switzerland!
