Bugs in broccoli

cecilia | Jun 10, 2007 04:20 PM

I have just started buying organic broccoli to make baby food. I have noticed that there are LOTS of bugs in the florets. They are poppyseed size, along with what I think are eggs. Is that normal??? I have tried soaking the florets but it doesn't even get half the bugs out. Are there any tricks? I have already thrown out 3 or 4 heads of broccoli because of the bugs.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
