Anything that grows under the ground, start off in cold water: potatoes, beets, carrots, etc. Anything that grows above the ground, start off on boiling water: peas, green beans, etc. Never put a cover on anything that is cooked in milk unless you want to spend hours cleaning up the stove when it boils over.

Hm-m-m-m-m, I just go by the size of whatever I'm cooking, adding a pinch of sugar to all fresh veggies
and we love it, steaming everything possible that we cannot/do not eat washed/raw. We LOVE ORGANIC VEGGIES! : ) (02/16/2007)
