I can and freeze my own tomatoes...
I have used a lot of different oils with no issue with smoke point. As mentioned medium heat is the key. And the kernels explode because of steam pressure so above 212 degrees they will pop. Bacon fat makes really good unhealthy popcorn! I usually use corn oil because it is what I have for when I don't want olive oil flavor or low smoke point like for last nights stir fry. Had it at just at the smoke point of the corn oil when the steak bits went in to cook(round steak)
Plating? Meh toss it on whatever is handy and eat  
Caramelized onions with garlic and mushrooms, add a splash of wine or beer and cook off the liquid, or add worcestershire sauce and cook it down.

I already pickle beets(only way I will eat them too!), cabbage keeps for awhile but I am looking at long term storage over winter until I start getting fresh salad from the garden(mid June in MN). Not a cauliflower fan, eat some broccoli but not enough to make it worth my time growing.
