Fresh & Local Brussels Sprouts
choose the best
Look for bright green heads that are firm and heavy for their size. Avoid Brussels sprouts with yellowing leaves, a sign of age, or black spots, which could indicate fungus. Smaller Brussels sprouts are usually sweeter and more tender than larger ones.
To clean your Brussels sprouts, rinse them in cold water to remove any dirt. Trim and discard the tip of the stems, and remove any outer leaves that have blemishes.
Keep unwashed and untrimmed Brussels Sprouts stored in a perforated plastic bag in the vegetable compartment of the refrigerator. They can be kept for three to four days. Cooked Brussels sprouts will keep for three days refrigerated.
Brussels sprouts can be stir fried, steamed or baked. They are cooked when lightly browned (when stir-fried and baked) and tender on the inside (all cooking methods). Here are a few featured recipes you might enjoy:
