Remove all the green leaves and place the cauliflower head downward in cold water to which has been added 1 tablespoon of salt to each quart of water. Let soak one-half hour or more to draw out any insects that may have found their way into the flowerets. If the head is to be cooked whole, tie it in a cheese cloth to prevent breaking. Boil in salted water until tender, taking care not to cook longer than necessary. Drain and dress with melted butter.
Cauliflower is more quickly cooked if broken into the flowerets.
