Produce actually has to be cared for to grow.
Brussel Sprouts are delicious! Yes they are when cooked right. If they are overcooked they become bitter, and soggy as they over boil. Almost always, we are served overcooked and not so pleasant brussel sprouts! I never understood why. These mini cabbages are beautiful when done right. They are vibrant and very crisp and should remain as such even when cooked. Once done right they are truly irresistible.
Brussel sprouts are classically paired with chestnuts and pancetta. The combination just works beautifully. This is a classic christmas recipe, and is one you must have. Do give it a try and see how you will be making it every year from now on.
I have also included for you a very informative video on brussel sprout growing and harvesting. Well even if you are not planning to start a small farm in your garden, it is always good to know how things are grown, and what kind/amount of work goes into that. I find that we appreciate food and produce a whole lot more when we remember that it does not just appear in the supermarkets.
Have a great festive dinner and enjoy the holidays x
