Rescue needed for aphids infested cauliflower

Margret | Jul 7, 2005 09:46 PM

HELP! I am cooking dinner right now and when I went to clean my beautiful farm fresh organic cauliflower, there are hundreds of aphids or other tiny green bugs imbedded in the florets. I tried flushing them out, then I soaked the florets in salt water, then I pour salt directly on the florets and they seemed to be glued to the crevices. Does anyone out there have any suggestions?? Please! My alternative is to cook them and consider the bugs protein...I don't know about that one.
