Next, thoroughly rinse the florets in a good-size colander in the sink, to get rid of any residual dirt. Pat dry with a clean dish or paper towel and get ready to blanch.

Step 2: Blanch

Next, fill a large saucepan with enough water to cover the cauliflower and bring to a boil. Add the florets and let boil for 1-2 minutes. Drain, then immediately place in a bowl full of ice water for 1-2 minutes. This technique is known as blanching. By boiling the fresh vegetables, you kill any bacteria and the partial cook time locks in the cauliflower's vitamins, helping it stay (and taste!) fresh once frozen.
