Broccoli Stumps?

Did you ever wonder what ever happens to the stems of the broccoli that they cut off when they make those pre-packaged flowerettes at the market?

No, I never wondered about that. You don’t have enough on your mind these days, now do ya Purple?

Maybe dog food?

Vegetable oil? (I always thought that sounded sorta vague)


They sell 'em to the Campbell’s company, and they make their way into the Cream of Broccoli soup.

Not bad, eh?



Is this kinda like muffin stumps?

Hey, I know this! The stumps go into the packages of frozen broccoli – at least the ones I buy. No flowerets – just stumps.
