Broccoli

The broccoli is ready.  The problem is that it is all ready at the same time.  I usually give a lot of it away, but this year I am trying to freeze it. 
 Aren't these heads huge.
 After we harvest the large head there are plenty of side shoots.
 After trimming and washing, I boiled it for 3 minutes.
 Then right into the ice water.
 Next came drying.
And finally, beautiful freezer ready packages of broccoli. (I don't have a vacuum sealer but I read where you can use freezer bags and suck the air out through a straw.  Guess I'll see this winter if that helps keep freezer burn at bay.)
