Broccoli

Description

Hailed as one of the most nutritious vegetables around, broccoli should be an essential part of your diet. The crunchy stalk and tiny leaflets on this flowering green plant contain an array of vitamins and minerals that aid in the maintenance of a healthy nervous and immune system, blood pressure, bone, eye and heart health.

Storage

Do not wash broccoli prior to storage. Use a paper towel to pat dry prior to placing in a plastic bag and storing in the crisper drawer. Cold storage is perfect for broccoli. Do not store near fruit or melons.
