It don’t mean a thing if it isn’t green

Broccoli appears in grocery stores year-round in varying degrees of freshness.

Before buying, check out the cut end of the stems. If they have a greyish look, don’t buy. That indicates the broccoli isn’t very fresh.

If possible, buy broccoli directly from someone who grows it.

It’s a vegetable we take for granted, but it is delicious and very good for you.
