How to master Brussels sprouts
So, you want to master Brussels sprouts? But does the very name fill you with dread? Brussels sprouts are members of the Brassica (or cruciferous) family of vegetables (which includes cabbage, kale, broccoli, and cauliflower) and have a decidedly stinky reputation that has made them a divisive veggie at the dinner table, so much so that a 2008 survey by Heinz identified the little green guys as the most hated vegetable in the U.S. But why are Brussels sprouts so disliked? Do they deserve their noxious rep, or have we just been cooking them all wrong? It's time to master our relationship with Brussels sprouts once and for all. This guide will help you do it.
