Brussel Sprouts

Brussel Sprouts, the vegetable that amazes me.
Last year we grew 8 - 10 Brussel Sprout plants, ate lots fresh, gave a few plants away. That was fun since we left them on the stem for people. Most had never seen a brussel sprout plant before. The rest we put in the root cellar with the potatoes and carrots. Today I went down to get some more potatoes and carrots for dinner, and there was one Brussel Sprout stem left, so I brought it in. Granted, it was a big ugly. Some sprouts had a blackened outer leaf, and a few other designs. I cut the sprouts off and just peeled off the outer leafs until it looked edible. Then steamed them up and super good on the dinner plate !! March is the latest we've ever kept one, and this year, it worked !!
