Brussels Sprout Tips

Brussels Sprouts are one of my favorite vegetables.  They are high in fiber, vitamins, and minerals.   Below are a few tips for picking and storing this under utilized vegetable.

Tip 1.  Pick small firm Brussels Sprouts that are bright green in color without yellow or wilted leaves. 

Tip 2.  Choose sprouts that are approximately the same size, so they will cook uniformly. 

Tip 3.  Store them in the refrigerator crisper in a plastic bag. 

My new cookbook is available at schools, businesses, hospitals, and book fairs in cities across the United States.  Be sure to pick up a copy or two, when you see them.  They make great gifts!

Check back on Friday,
