Broccoli Worms

Anonymous added on August 19, 2011 | Answered

I bought some organic broccoli and when I got home and started cleaning it, I discovered several worms and little black bugs. Is there a good method to clean the broccoli and kill the bugs without using damaging soap or other chemicals? I'd like to eat organic broccoli, but this makes it very difficult.

If you soak the broccoli in a bowl of salted water it will pull the insects out of the broccoli. Try cutting it to how much you would like to prepare and let sit in the salty water for 15 minutes. Rinse well and cook as you like.
