Many, many, many, centuries ago... in a land, far, far, far, away....there
was an ancient tribal clan called the ARAGONI-KUKUS. These people
adored the cauliflower, goddess of marital bliss.
So important was this flower-plant to them, that brides married
while holding one, adorned with twigs, beetles, feathers, moss, pine
nuts, sparrow eggs, deer hoofs, bunny tails, squirrel bones, boar's
teeth, and whatever else they found in the forest to make it look
a little prettier....
That is... until a certain clan- bride, Princess Me, holding her heavy
cauliflower-bouquet... was stood up by her Kuku fiancee, at Stone Altar
Church of Kuku
Princes Me, embarrassed and ANGRY, cried all the way to her castle-hut,
and took vengeance upon her Kuku fiancee by casting a spell on the
cauliflower- bouquet that he may never be loved by any woman, including
the ugly ones! She proceeded to wash all adornments off, separated the
florets, and threw them into salted boiling water, while saying GRRRR....
When the cauliflower was tender but firm, She strained it...and
wondered what to do with it next....
She was depressed, she was hungry, and the forbidden cauliflower was looking
good to her! Her mind started wondering... She had some flour...hmmmm...and her
pet chicken had laid a few eggs so ...she covered the florets in the flour.
Princess Me tested the oil by dropping a few drops of egg..and laughed loudly
thinking what she would like to do to her fiancee.....(It was the momentary
anger....she was a sweet girl. Put yourself in her straw shoes!)
She saw it was time...and dropped the cauliflower carefully in the hot oil.
them on ancient world paper towels to absorb the extra oil...
The princess tasted one, and thought it was DELICIOUS! And, since she was
still ANGRY she ate it ALL!!! When she finished her last bite she felt full and
happy...and thought humbling the goddess of marital bliss to everyday food
felt even better!!! So she made huge baskets of fried cauliflower and took it
to town where every Kuku tasted it and started adoring the cauliflower in
a different way...and never were they used as bridal bouquets again!
INSTEAD THEY USED BEETS!!!
