I'd eat chocolate-covered broccoli. But it's better with ketchup!

To be fair to mum the excessive steaming time and especially the bicarb thingie seems to be the favoured cooking method of vegetables except curiously, potatoes in the south-west...


My mother used to do the same thing --boil vegetables for until they were yellow.
Put butter and salt on it, she'd say.

Peg never did go as far as adding baking soda and I can't imagine what good it may do for flavor.

Never disrespect potatoes by adding anything to the water!
My mom couldn't cook many things, but she was Irish and took her potatoes very seriously.

My daughter puts mustard (the good mix-it-up stuff) on popcorn; it's not bad.
It's certainly better than boiled-forever veggies.
