To say our broccoli crop is bountiful in summer is putting it mildly - it grows "like crazy" when we have light 24 hours a day for a month or two! I make sure to freeze plenty for this recipe, which makes a unique side dish for dinner when company's coming. My family's happy when these are on the menu.
