bouquet-like whitebrocoli, which is in season all year round, is one of the common home-cooked dishes, but it is easy to hide vegetable insects in the dense flower bulbs. Before, a netizen said that he washed cauliflower and washed out dozens of vegetable worms, which made him anxious to ask “how to wash cauliflower?” in the Facebook community. Some people suggest soaking in salt water, while others say adding flour or cornstarch for washing.
However, according to a post on the Facebook fan page of Taipei Agricultural Products, the correct washing method is to soak the whole cauliflower in running water, and then grab the flower stalks and quickly enter and exit the water to wash off the floating bugs. Finally, after cutting into blossoms, perform a simple rinse.
3 steps to get rid of cauliflower bugs:
1. Rinse: Soak the whole cauliflower in running water.
2. Flooding: Hold the flower stalk and quickly enter and exit the water surface to wash off the floating bugs.
3. Cut into pieces: After cutting to an appropriate size, rinse briefly.
The only way to wash fruits and vegetables: wash with running water
In addition to the washing methods suggested by the above-mentioned netizens, it is common for people to use vegetable and fruit detergents to wash vegetables and fruits. These are not the correct methods. Tan Dunci, a nurse at the Clinical Poison Center of Chang Gung Hospital, once taught everyone that there is only one way to wash vegetables, and that is to wash them with “running water”. For the first time and the second time, roughly wash off the dirt on the surface of the vegetables. After the third time, fill the water basin for the vegetables, and then rinse with flowing water, but the flowing water only needs to be about the thickness of a chopstick. The water flow of 100 degrees is enough, and it takes about 12 minutes to wash, and then the vegetables can be picked up and drained for cooking.
