Are brussels sprouts really that hard to work with?

Gosh ........ another solution for a non-existent problem

I didn't like Brussels Sprouts but that was big overcooked ones with sour leaves.

Jo loved them and so we had them and now I love them too and we have them with our roast most weeks when in season, just simply steamed.

When I buy, I use the self serve bin and select only the smallest ones, from which I remove all the loose outer green leaves till I get a knobby pale sprout, then steam till cooked al dente.

Glad you converted! They're SO good. I like them many ways but my favorites are halved and steamed (they don't need water per se, but should go in wet) with a little butter and cardamom seeds in the microwave, mw'd and then roasted--they'll be creamy inside--or roasted with garlic and tossed in red wine vinegar and olive oil and finished with toasted breadcrumbs.

Ridiculous tool.

Brussel sprouts and I have a fraught relationship. They're cabbages so ugh. And most of my life I have been served them canned or frozen.

But, fresh ones, halved and sauteed, are good. Sprouts slaw is good.

I think I like the French style with chestnuts.
