I was preparing dinner for the kids and was soaking some broccoli in a bowl water. When I came back to the bowl, this was what I saw.
I immediately poured the water away and added a new batch of water. This time, I also picked up each piece of broccoli to shake and rinse them in the water. I probably had to change the water three or four times before I didn’t see anymore black specks in the water.
To be fair, this doesn’t always happen I want to cook broccoli. But after this time, I am definitely going to wash broccoli more thoroughly before I cook them!
