How To Wash?

  • Rinse the vegetables under running water to get rid of pesticides, dirt and traces of mud. You may even rub the vegetables gently to make the process even more effective.

  • Remove the thick portions of the vegetable. Cut it in whatever shape you prefer.

  • Boil some water in a vessel. Add half a teaspoon of salt to it.

  • Once the water is warm enough add the vegetable florets to it.

  • Let it settle for about 5 minutes after which you can drain the vegetables and take them for use.

This process entirely cleans the vegetables without changing it's texture, color or flavor.
