I gotta admit, purple cauliflower is kinda cool. Reply MC Spanky McGee February 19th, 2008 Those are kinda trippy, the purple one especially. See what happens when they pull those out at Applebee’s. Heh. Could get rejected, could be a big hit. Dunno. Reply Abi Jones February 19th, 2008 They have the purple and orange ones (and crazy pyramid shaped ones too) at Eastern Market when they’re in season. The summer, I think. Reply K February 20th, 2008 I’ve been buying these for several years from a farmer’s market. They are gorgeous on a plate when roasted, and add some great color to a meal. Just don’t make a soup out of the purple one. Reply Julie February 20th, 2008 That cauliflower caught my eye, it’s so vibrant. I see these once in awhile at the supermarket but for some reason these just look so much better. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
