Cauliflower Shortage in the USA

Recommended Posts

Kids no longer have to eat cauliflower because there is none to be had! Children across the US are rejoicing and praying for a broccoli shortage next!

 

There’s a cauliflower shortage in the US, and it’s making prices skyrocket

You’re not alone if you’re having trouble finding cauliflower in US or Canadian grocery stores—or digesting the price, which has recently been observed at $7 per head or more.

A shortage due to cold weather in areas where cauliflower grows in the US—California’s Imperial Valley and near Yuma, Arizona—has caused wholesale prices to more than double since early November, according to US Department of Agriculture data. Wholesale prices passed $4 per head on Dec. 12.

Forget the high prices, you can’t even get cauliflower. Nobody is even quoting it,” Rick Reed of New York-based chain Price Chopper told The Produce News on Dec. 8.

Make "mashed potatoes" from cauliflower. Boil until done, like potatoes, add milk, butter, salt and pepper, mash or blend.  Well, nm I guess that recipe doesn't matter since there's none to be had!  It WAS  a low carb version of mashed potatoes and tasted pretty good.  Now everyone on low carb diets are going to have to do without their faux mashed potatoes.
