"We kids feared many things in those days - werewolves, dentists, North Koreans, Sunday School - but they all paled in comparison with Brussels sprouts."
-Dave Barry, Humorist

The refrigerator light goes on...

If you don't think you like Brussels sprouts, have this recipe. The roasting caramelizes them and along with the garlic lends a savory flavor. The touch of sugar helps with the browning and adds a bit of sweetness.

Brussels Sprouts

The rule of thumb for this tiny member of the cabbage family is to buy small ones and buy them as fresh as possible. Even though they look like little cabbages, they actually grow off the sides of a thick stalk and can be found in the market this way now (and if you do, buy them).

Try to use them the day that they are purchased, as there is less time for them to develop a bitter flavor.

There�s a lot of fiber in these little guys. Each serving has almost five grams.
