Cauliflower with black spots?

3 posts in this topic

I have a couple of heads of cauliflower that were hiding in the bottom of the veggie bin in the fridge. Black spots on the surface that I assume is mold. Can I trim off the black spots and still cook these heads? Or should I trash them? I hate to throw away food just because I neglected it.

I regularly shave off a bit of black here and there on cauliflower, and it seems just fine.

Yeppers, small, surface black spots are no big whup. Obviously, slime and clear decay is a deal-breaker, but a few little black zits can get removed with no problem. Just cut a bit more under the surface than superficial. It'll be fine.
