Brussel sprouts

Brussel sprouts

about

In season from November to February. Orginally, Brussels Sprouts were cultivated in Belgium (hence the name) from cabbages, before being introduced the UK in the late eighteenth century. Generations of children are still mourning that day!If cooked correctly, Brussels should have a pleasant and nutty flavour. If over-cooked however, they’ll give off their infamous sulphur smell... not a good memory for many!

nutritional info

Cruciferous vegetables - such as sprouts, broccoli and cabbage - are linked with a wide range of health benefits. Brussels are a good source of vitamins A and C, iron, potassium and fibre. In fact, just 6 lightly cooked sprouts contain an adult's recommended daily allowance of vitamin c.

storing Brussel sprouts

Sprouts should be kept cool at all times and eaten before the leaves discolour or they develop a strong smell. If detached from the stalk they'll keep for about 5 days in the salad drawer of your fridge.
