Mother Nature did not have actually OCD.  If she did, there would certainly be an ext symmetry in the world.  It would be a pretty boring place, but, at the very least all ours vegetables would be the same size, which bring me come this point:  How much is in a head of cauliflower?  The most frustrating thing about most cauliflower recipes is their absence of specificity regarding precisely how much cauliflower to purchase.  Generic dimensions for volume (2 cups-, 4 cups-florets) or a vague product description (1 large head, 2 tool heads), are meaningless to the median cooker-of-cauliflower, and, are the biggest causes of recipe fail -- stop recipe failure, use a scale.  

Weight (1, 2-pound head, 1 pound florets) is the just measurement precious a damn.

You are watching: How many ounces is a head of cauliflower

Measuring cauliflower requires a scale, both in the grocery store store once purchasing this vegetable, and, in the kitchen when cooking it.  For my demonstration, i bought two medium heads of cauliflower.  Untrimmed, the one ~ above the left weighed 2 pounds, 15 ounces, and, the one ~ above the ideal weighed 2 pounds, 2 ounces.  After trimming, here is how it all weighed out:

A usual untrimmed, medium head weighs about 2 pounds.

After trimming & remove florets whereby each meets the core...

... A 1-quart measure up full-to-the-top (6 cups) florets...

... Or, about speaking, between 1-1 1/4 pounds florets.

Chopped florets native 1, 2-pound head = 4 generosity cups.

Don't play, weigh the cauliflower an initial -- at the store!
