Description: Brussels sprouts. Brussels sprouts are a winter vegetable which is cultivated for its buds, which resemble tiny cabbages the size of walnuts which grow up a vertical stalk. They have an improved flavour after they have been exposed to frost, but are one of the few foods to be detested by my lovely husband. They are usually boiled but are good braised, perhaps with bacon.
