Aren’t they beautiful?


We started eating brussel sprouts frequently about a year ago-until then I had grossed-out childhood¬†notions of steamed, formerly-frozen brussel sprouts that smelled bad. Being new to them, it took me a couple of times of cutting and preparing them to realize that there is a “right” way to cut a brussel sprout, which is to slice along the “core” and not across it.
