Paleo Broccoli Slaw

Have you ever wondered what to do with the stocks of broccoli?  When you buy organic broccoli, nine times out of 10 the stocks are bigger then the florets.  I've always just cut off the tops for eating and thrown away the stocks.  I didn't think we could eat those parts as I thought it would be gritty and tough but come to find out that you can eat it after all!  I thought I would experiment the other day and so I cut off the bad parts and used my peeler to peal off a layer.  I then used my cuisinart with the cheese grater attachment to shred it to the perfect slaw consistency.  I made this for my family over the holidays and they all loved it so it is blog worthy!  If you are on the Paleo challenge you will need to omit the cranberries and replace the agave with 1/8 to 1/4 cup of apple butter.
