I'm with Nev on this. Too many people over cook sprouts leaving them soggy and tasting sh1te. But if they are served in a crunchy state they are quite nice

Re: Do you like sprouts?????

Eat your sprouts guys, they are important, along with broccoli and cauliflower in fighting prostrate cancer. These vegetables are powerful antioxidents and stop the progression of cancer in 52% of cases.

My dad has just been diagnosed with prostrate cancer and has to wait a month to see the specialist. We hope it hasn't spread to any other organs.

If men live long enough they will ALL get this cancer.

so eat your sprouts and other cruciferous vegetables

sorry, teacher mode now off, the program can continue now.

A sweet fresh sprout, cooked to perfection, crisp and all buttery, is a marvellous thing.

Sorry to hear about your dad classicgal.

This little fact must be true. I heard it on QI.

Re: Do you like sprouts?????

They improve your gas mileage quite a lot as well.

I used to go sprout picking at Christmas when I was a student. Hateful job, but needed the money to buy pressies (aka.. beer). Even back in the seventies there were Polish ladies who could pick a row of sprouts before the rest of us had got out of the van..boy could they work! It was so cold we used to hold swearing competitions in our sandwich break to keep warm.

I like them, crunchy with a bit of butter or decent gravy. Freshly picked they are quite effective catapult ammunition as well.

Sorry to hear about your Dad CG, I hope it all works out ok for him.



As for sprouts, I LOVE them slightly crunchy or better yet, cold from the fridge with butter and freshly cracked black pepper
