101 Uses For is popular and let's hope it stays that way. Our second book is presently called 101 tips for self sufficiency; we will certainly dip into this section for ideas. So post away and let's try and get at least one thread up to 101.

when I read the OP, I thought sure this was about alfalfa sprouts or bean sprouts :dontknow:

Number ???

11. Boiled brussel sprouts with lid on...a little on the raw side :)

btw greg, I love the "classic boiled Savoy cabbage flavour"

OK, I'll rephrase that statement ... no hang on a minute, no I won't. :iconbiggrin:

My daughter cooked the vegetables for Christmas dinner (we cooked the turkey (she lives next door)) and her sprouts definitely had a hint of bitterness about them. She bought them in a supermarket, so there ARE still bitter sprouts about, but I will stand by my original statement because I have never had bitter sprouts from home grown ones.
So all you people who complain about them, grow your own and appreciate one of the finest vegetables when variety and growing culture is not dictated by cost, convenience and shelf life.

BTW, I'm with Minnesota, I too like the classic Savoy taste. :iconbiggrin:

Disclaimer: I almost certainly haven't a clue what I'm talking about.

Me too, but can't bear the concentrated cabbage taste of sprouts, bitter or otherwise. :iconbiggrin:

What number were we up to?

12. Compost them. :lol:

that doyenne of Victorian British cookery, Mrs Beeton, has Brussels Sprouts Salad

consists of cold cooked sprouts, lightly tossed in salad dressing. piled in a dish and garnish ed with beetroot

even tho i like sprouts, this way of serving does not appeal!
