Benefits of Broccoli

41. How to Select
Choose broccoli with floret clusters that are compact and not bruised. They should be uniformly colored, either dark green, sage or purple green, depending upon variety, and with no yellowing. In addition, they should not have any yellow flowers blossoming through, as this is a sign of over maturity. The stalk and stems should be firm with no slimy spots appearing either there or on the florets. If leaves are attached, they should be vibrant in color and not wilted.

Place broccoli in a plastic bag, removing as much of the air from the bag as possible. Store in the refrigerator where it will keep for 10 days. Do not wash broccoli before storing because exposure to water encourages spoilage. Partial heads of broccoli should be placed in a well sealed container or plastic bag and refrigerated.

Leftover cooked broccoli should be placed in tightly covered container and stored in the refrigerator where it will keep for a few days.
43. Tips for Preparing Broccoli
Rinse broccoli under cold running water. Cut florets into quarters for quick and even cooking. Be sure to enjoy the stems and leaves of broccoli; they provide a good balance of flavors. Peel the broccoli stem and cut the stem into 1/2 slices To get unique health benefits from broccoli, let it sit for several minutes before cooking.
