I would never throw the core away, all that needs to be done is for it to be peeled, there’s a lot of cauliflower flesh being wasted otherwise. The way I cut cauliflower is to simply cut the stem off from the bottom, after having peeled off the leaves, and then peel the core while it’s a whole stem…after that just slice up the core into bite-size pieces.
Wow-what a great way to easily cut and core cauliflower! Can’t wait to teach my kids! This trick would probably work for a fennel bulb too. Thanks for sharing!
Surely cauliflower cut this way means that some of the florets will be cut too, resulting in breaking up easily when cooked. I prefer my florets to stay whole.
No, the florets are fine and stay together. Try it, you’ll see!
I must be seeing different images ! I can see floret heads cut in half and bits of the floret heads on the chopping board.
True! There will be a few bits of florets as shown. And you might manage to not make one of the cuts perfectly. But if another method works better for you, great!
Wow! Thank you Elise! This surely makes it easier! It seems like a no-brainer but I’ve been doing it the hard way for way too many years!
Thank you so much for sharing this!
Do you realize how delicious the raw cores are?
Of course, I love the cores! They’re great to munch on raw.
Thanks for sharing this – I love learning new “tricks”
hahaha, I did it all wrong!
Nice! I’ll remember that!
Wow! Why had I never thought of doing this before, so much quicker than how I’ve been doing it
