Broccoli is a wonderful cool weather crop that grows with great abundance at Full Belly Farm. To make the most out of this nutrient rich crop, be sure to eat it when it is fresh. Broccoli can be stored in the refrigerator, in a plastic bag, for a few days.  Make it simple — just chop it up and steam it, or be more adventurous and make it part of a hearty soup!  Make sure to eat the stem too; it’s the sweetest part of the plant, although you may want to peel it if the outer part is too thick and fibrous.
