Brussels sprouts

October 20, 2011

Guess what.  We got our first frost.

So guess what I did.  Picked some brussels sprouts!

Brussel sprouts harvested from garden

Brussels sprouts have their best flavor after a frost or two as they tend to sweeten a bit, mitigating some of the weird, bittery flavor you sometimes find in a brussels sprout.

It’s probably easy to believe that I love brussels sprouts, but Tyler actually loves them even more.  That’s why I’m waiting until he gets home tonight to see how he wants them prepared.

I mean how could you not like them.  They are the cutest little things.  Yes food can be cute.

When I was plant shopping earlier this year, Tyler sent me a text begging me to buy a brussels sprout plant.  Funny thing is I had just put one in my plant box about a minute before he text me.  This is my first year of having one in the garden.

Just a small harvest tonight, but hopefully a good one!

Do you like brussels sprouts?  People seem to either love or hate ’em.

    LOVE brussel sprouts! I usually saute them with onions, some S&P, and nutmeg.

Life in Green would love to hear from you...
