Brussels Sprouts

Flavor.of.Europe's picture
I served the Brussels Sprouts for a party last week and you wouldn't believe the response I got! Who would have thought that such a simple vegetable dish would get that kinda response! Try this wonderful Brussels Sprouts recipe!
  Small sprouts 1 Pound
  Butter 1 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Black pepper To Taste
  Boiling water 1 Cup (16 tbs)

Trim the sprouts and discard the loose outside leaves.
Soak them in cold salted water for a half hour.
Put them in a pan of boiling salted water and cook until tender but still firm.
If the sprouts are really fresh and small, they will be cooked in 10 to 15 minutes.
Drain them well, glaze with butter, sprinkle with black pepper, and serve at once.
It is most important not to overcook sprouts.
They should retain a definite "bite" under your teeth.
