Broccoli harvest

This week was the first big broccoli harvest. I headed out to the garden and cut most of the heads that were ready. Beast was curious as always. Then it was time to go inside and prep them for freezing. 

Step 1 - Soak heads in the sink to encourage any bugs to get out.
Step 2 - Chop into large bite sized pieces
Step 3 - Put in boiling water for 2-3 minutes
Step 4 - Transfer into ice water to stop the cooking process
Step 5 - Spread onto lined trays

Step 6 - Place in freezer for a day
Step 7 - Bag up the frozen broccoli pieces and pack back into the freezer
Step 8 - Enjoy garden broccoli throughout the rest of the year
