Brussel Sprouts

​In season: August through to March.

Often associated with Christmas dinner, Brussel Sprouts are a versatile winter vegetable. They have a distinctive flavour which can be unpleasant if they are overcooked. Choose small, green sprouts for the best flavour and firm compact ones for a good texture.

Serve as an accompanying vegetable to roast turkey or chicken or to game dishes. Toss in butter and sesame seeds or top with crispy bacon before serving or serve simply with ground black pepper.

Wash thoroughly in cold water, trim off any damaged leaves and the stem. For larger sprouts, cut a cross in the base of each sprout with a small, sharp knife - this ensures the thick stem cooks at the same rate as the leaves.

Sprouts can be boiled or steamed. To boil, bring a pan of salted water to the boil, add the sprouts and cook for 10-15 minutes or until tender. To steam, place in a steamer and cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Drain well before serving.

Last Saturday I got ALL my veggies, salad and fruit here for the whole week ahead, enough to feed 3 adults and 3 guineapigs!! All the items I bought were fresh, as if they'd been picked or dug up that day. It is now Thursday and what is still left is still fresh...fantastic quality and price. This green grocers has been there for as long as I can remember and is known by my family as 'The Long Shop'! I will be going out of my way to give this shop my custom from now on...
