Look at this for a giant cauliflower my friend has grown he is a few plots to my left.The whole of it weighed about 18lbs and I got about 8lbs I could cook.

It had gone a little bit past its best but was delicious when cooked. Made cauliflower cheese.

Have been preparing and cooking cauliflower for the last 2hours will freeze it ( will get a lot of meals from that)

My friend gave it to me as he has enough.
