How To Freeze Cauliflower
Learn how to freeze cauliflower with this easy step by step tutorial. Make us of these florets when you want to whip up a few cauliflower recipes!
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 head of cauliflower
- 1 large pot boiling water
- 1 large bowl ice water
Wash the cauliflower and cut it in half, then quarters. Remove the florets and cut them into smaller pieces (if necessary).
Begin the blanching process. Bring a large pot of water to boil and add the cauliflower. Let it simmer for about 1-2 minutes then remove from the pot using a slotted spoon or skimmer.
Transfer the cauliflower immediately to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process and let it chill for about 2 minutes.
Drain the cauliflower and gently pat the florets dry to remove any extra moisture.
Spread the cauliflower across a baking sheet and freeze for 1-2 hours.
Transfer the frozen cauliflower to freezer bags or containers and freeze for several months.
- The stand up Stasher Bags (silicone storage bags) are my favorite for storing frozen cauliflower as you can fit more in them than the regular sandwich bags.
