Most people are familiar with white cauliflower. But cauliflowers also come in colors such as purple and orange. Cauliflower doesn’t like heat or frost, but cauliflower needs at least two to three months to mature. Blanch cauliflower to turn the head white (or the color it is slated to be) and improve the flavor. Blanching can be done by covering the cauliflower head with the leaves of the plant. It is time to blanch the cauliflower when its size is about the size of an egg.
