Varieties we grow and love:
- Diablo- great for late season
- Red Ball – a red Brussel
As always, fresh produce is most delicious and nutritious when consumed as close to the harvest date as possible.
When first harvested, we sell Brussels attached to their stalk. Later on we strip the sprouts from the stalk and sell loose. Brussels will keep a good long time if kept cold enough, and not crowded, and not too compacted. the still need to breathe a little.
Having said all that, Brussel Sprouts steamed just right close to harvest are sweet, faintly cabbagy- broccoli.
– can be enjoyed in:
- if you are only going to eat them once: steam them, drizzle with butter and lemon juice or vinegar
- au gratin
Tips for preparing:
snap sprouts off the stalk, if they are still on it, trim ends and remove any damaged or loose wrapper leaves
