Like them now, but hated them as a child.

Don't like them over cooked and mushy though, just boiled until beginning to soften but still green. Over cooked all the flavour and goodness ends up left in the water that you tip down the sink.

This love/hate of sprouts must be a north/south thing.
Supermarkets here in Coventry sell them for most of the year. I'm always amazed that people only have them at Christmas.

I hate 'em. I shouldn't since I sell parts for (among other things) sprout harvesters, but I still hate 'em.

Don't tip it down the sink, the water from sprouts (or cabbage for that matter) is wonderful for gravy.

I like my sprouts steamed and served with roast chestnuts.

Love them, particularly when they are soft and mushy.

I've always understood that stock made with brassicas is unpalatable, so I've never tried. Might have to now.

Quite the opposite, it makes lovely gravy. In fact, I read somewhere that the Royal Society of Chemistry did some tests and concluded that beef stock and cabbage water are the essential ingredients for a perfect gravy.

There's a difference between 'soft' and one boiled-to-death serving I experienced once, at my Grandparents' wedding anniversary party. I rested the back of my fork on a sprout... and it sank in! You could see it oozing between the tines.

I find steaming them helps avoid this.

If you don't like the taste, here's another reason to buy them at Christmas.
