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

 

Each to their own, shall we start a thread on how to make the perfect Yorkshire Pudding?

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

Open the oven and turn the gas on put your head in the oven and just wait

Or you could put your ass in the oven and warm your brains

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...

Good job I like 'em. I've just peeled what seemed to be a never ending supply of the blighters.

I wonder what Ang's reaction is to Flower Sprouts. Heaven or heresy?

I love sprouts.  Had the most gorgeous sprouts ever on Christmas Day.  Done to perfection: boiled until they just turn soft; not soggy, just slightly soft.  Wonderful!

The tradition in our house is to put our Christmas sprouts on to boil on New Years Day.

Use Christmas sprouts up by frying with onions, adding stock, blending into a soup and flushing down the toilet!

Not tried them yet, but I spotted some in M&S the other day, so may give them a go.
