This recipe comes at a time when fresh broccoli is plentiful. The recipe was published in a cookbook created by the California Farm Bureau Women, “Country Cooking…California Style”. It was submitted by Santa Cruz County’s own Hulda McLean (1906-2006), who was the wife of a Santa Cruz County Farm Bureau President and a well-known resident. She was the Santa Cruz County Farm Bureau’s Farmer of the Year in 2002. Enjoy Hulda’s “country cooking.”
