OMG!!! Anybody seen the Purple & Gold cauliflower yet?

Saw this at Albertson's, had to have it. The gold is a little darker than it appears here; color's a little washed out for some reason.

Not only have I seen it, I've eaten it!

I think they have green too?

How are you going to cook it?

I saw a cool display that made a tiger's eye with the gold, purple and white cauliflower, but can't find the image.

There's a local farmer in Bayou Blue that grows it. Taste just like the white ones.

I dunno...can anyone who's had it before tell me if it loses much color from cooking? That purple is so deep, I'm leaning towards ranch dip, and eat it raw.

I think I would Blanche it and make a slaw or salad with a dressing made with oil, red wine or balsamic vinegar, a little creole mustard, cayenne pepper and a touch of sugar/honey. Serve cold.

It's called carnival cauliflower. You must cook them separately and ice them immediately after blanching to retain color retention. Then sautee them with some oil salt pepper and crushed garlic. Or just roast them with a coating of olive oil salt and pepper.

Sorry, but it fades in every way I've used it except in pickled shrimp. Faded a little in that, but not much.

In my experience, the gold/yellow fades, but the purple holds a little more color. Steamed, it fades to a pale lavender, like an old lady's bluish hair.
