This recipe is from mid-17th century England
- Trim the cauliflower of leaves and stalk.
- Put it into boiling salted water and boil gently for 15 minutes or until tender.
- Remove, drain and separate into florets.
- Place in a serving dish.
- Pour over the melted butter, seasoned with salt and pepper, into which half an orange and half a lemon have been squeezed.
I thought this was a really good way to serve cauliflower, I too, used only half the butter called for in the original recipe, and it worked fine. The only problem was: 15 minutes is much too long to boil the cauliflower. I would definitely prepare this again and cook for about 10 minutes. Thanks. Joanie.
I am always looking for fast, simple, slightly different, tasty, low-fat things to do with vegetables. Well, four out of five isn't bad. I did balk at all that butter and used half the amount called for. It was still very good.
