As the old joke goes, the only difference between sprouts and snot is that you can't get kids to eat sprouts!!

We've got our sprouts on the boil at this very moment. Should be just about done by Christmas Day!

Nope

Sprouts is sprouts and chestnuts is chestnuts

Stir frying makes them greasy

Here's my fool proof recipe

Boil some salted water in a pan
Put your sprouts into the boiling water
Turn the sprout laden water to simmer
When they are nice and soft drain the sprouts
Put them on your plate of dinner
Perhaps put some black pepper on
Enjoy

No bullshyte
No attempts to disguise the true flavour by putting foreign bodies like bacon and chestnuts to disguise the flavour which is delectable enough anyway

all this stuff of cooking them with bacon, serving them with garlic butter and chestnuts is aimed at one thing, to stop the sprouts tasting of - erm - sprouts, why bother with them, we don't

If you like

Get some muffin tins
Put some oil in all of the compartments
Put the tins in the oven
Turn the oven up to eleven

While its getting hot- the oven that is

Get some plain flour
Get some eggs
Get some milk
Get some salt and pepper
Get a jug

I can't say how much: unjust know
Whisk it all up in the jug

Put it to one side whilst the oven is dead dead hot
When this happens pour the mixture into each if the compartments of the tins
Shut the oven door
When the puddings have risen up as surely they must and are a nice shade of brown they are cooked

My puddings always work out but I really can't say what the quantities are. i just know when the mixture is right

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'm one of those that just have them at Christmas.

There was a kid at my school who was known as sprout for precisely the same reason.

Nobody really likes 'em, they're tolerated. Something rather unpleasant to deal with where once is too often and in the end they stink like a old fart in a sweaty sock.

 

 

 

But enough about l'ang...
