How to Select
Look for crisp, bright green broccolini™ with long, tender green stalks and closed buds. Check to ensure the base looks fresh and is not dried out. Avoid produce with any yellowed buds, or soft or browned spots.
How to Store
Store unwashed and untrimmed broccolini™ in a plastic bag in the fridge for up to 10 days.
How to Freeze
Freeze broccolini™ by first cutting florets into bite-sized pieces and chopping the stalks. In a pot of boiling water, blanch for about 1 minute until the broccolini™ turns bright green. Drain and plunge immediately into an ice bath to halt the cooking process. Drain and transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper and arrange in one layer. Flash freeze, then transfer to an airtight container or freezer bag and use within 6-8 months.
