SUGARED CAULIFLOWER LIKE THE LAKESIDE TOO IN TAWAS, MI. (Gloria Pitzer)
1 lb. frozen cauliflower buds
1/4 lb. butter
1/2 c. light brown sugar, packed
Par boil the cauliflower buds til they're tender-crisp (don't let them get limp), drain and set aside. In a "roomy" skillet melt butter (don't let it change color to brown), add cauliflower and turn gently to coat evenly. Sprinkle evenly with the brown sugar. Continue turning and coating til sugar begins to melt completely and begins to caramelize (about 3-4 minutes). Remove from heat. Transfer pieces to a serving bowl using a slotted spoon. Cool. Serve at room temperature.
(serves 8 as a side dish)
