How to Store Cauliflower in the Refrigerator

Storing our favorite cruciferous vegetable is a breeze! Here’s how:

The first step to storing cauliflower is to carefully wash the vegetable under cold running water. Thoroughly dry the cauliflower then remove and discard the stem. Next, cut the head into individual florets. The cauliflower should be placed into a plastic bag like a Glad® Flex'n Seal® Food Storage Gallon Bag. Put your bag in the refrigerator and you’re good to go!

How long does cauliflower last in the fridge? If stored properly, cauliflower can be enjoyed within 1 week!

For food safety, always clean your hands and surfaces before and after handling food. Remember to keep the refrigerator temperature at or below 40°F (4° C). The freezer temperature should be 0°F (-18° C).
