Cooking Pickled Cauliflower:

Step 1: Prepare Cauliflower.

Disassemble the cauliflower with an ordinary kitchen knife for inflorescences and remove any darkening. Put the pieces of cauliflower in a colander and rinse them under warm water, washing off all the dirt.
Pour clean water into the pan, add a little salt and boil over high heat. Immediately after the water boils, lower the cabbage inflorescences into it and cook 5 minutes also on high heat, and then using a slotted spoon, catch the cabbage back and put in a colander. Rinse with cold water and leave to drain from excess moisture.
Important: do not drain the resulting broth, we will need some of it for cooking in the future.
