I have just been watching Gregg Wallace doing a programme about how the super markets deal with the Christmas shopping nightmare. One of the things Gregg was investigating was Brussels Sprouts and he went to a Farm that produces tons of them for the Christmas trade. I smiled seeing them as I had eaten some with my Sunday Dinner, I dont mind Brussels but when Gregg tried to entice customers of one super Market to taste them he failed to get many takers. The Farmer he had visited has shown how by crossing varieties of Brussels they have become sweeter and tastier in recent years. I must agree the ones on my plate at lunch times were nicer than the over cooked ones of my childhood memories. Give the Brussels Sprouts a go this Christmas.
