Buying and preparing the sprouts
Want to make Brussels sprouts? Brussels sprouts belong to the family of cabbages. Fresh Brussels sprouts are beautifully fresh green with a white bottom. If they show brown specks or yellow brown edges or if the outer leaves are loosening, they’re no longer that fresh. By them when they are green and firm, and you will fully enjoy their exquisite taste. Don’t overcook them, which will make them bitter and difficult to digest.
