As a general rule I will not eat anything unless I, or someone I know, grows it ! Especially anything I eat fresh ! Rarely will I buy anything from the stores as frozen but our local store had broccoli with cheese sauce from a well known producer so thought I would buy a couple for emergencies ! Well, I decided to try one and the recommended cooking method was microwave cooking !~ OK,, did as they said and added an extra minute since my microwave is 900 watt and the instruction was for a 1000 watt ! It was the nastiest thing I have tried to eat in a while ! Top part of the broccoli was a mush and the stem part was tough as boot leather ! But did manage a few bites before I added it to the dogs food ! Then I read on the back that it is not from the USA and that you must make sure that it is done to 160 degrees ! Now I ask,, how does one check a 1/2 inch chunk of broccoli to see what temperature it is ? Wouldn`t you think that a company as large and well known as GG would make sure its produce is safe to eat ? You can figure out what the company is ! Needless to say the second box will be added to the dogs food in a day or so !
