Like, who does this?

Tightwad has a confession. The other day at the grocery store she was picking up some broccoli and thought to herself why pay by the pound for all of those woody broccoli stems? She knows that they are great for stocks, soups and stirfrys - even broccoli slaw - but she doesn't use them. So she snapped them off and just bagged the florets. Is this really bad, or what?

I confess to having thought about it but too much of a scaredy cat to do it.

just peel the stems! the stems are actually the sweetest part of broccoli, the fibrous outer layer is the yucky part!

I saw an elderly man with his pocket knife out, cutting off the stems of bananas. I wished I had the nerve to do so. Now, I want to cut off the stems of broccoli. Maybe I will peel the stems someday.
