Brussels Sprouts

A variety of cabbage, it has been cultivated in Brussels, Belgium, since the 13th century. Much of the U.S. crop comes from northern California. It is a good source of vitamins A and C. Buy green, firm sprouts, and keep them refrigerated as they are highly perishable. Cook them briefly in a small amount of boiling water (do not overcook to a mush!), and serve with butter or cheese sauce. It is said that adding a walnut to the cooking pot of sprouts will cut the cabbage odor. They can also be eaten chopped raw in salads.
