Is it too late to put the sprouts on for Christmas lunch?
I know I've left it a bit late this year but do you think they will be done in time if I use a pressure cooker?

Put some in a slow cooker ready for next year...

I thinly shred mine, then sweat them in a frying pan with oil and butter.

Boil them in salted water with a good pinch of cumin seeds, drain them when still firmish or done to your taste (no matter how many months you boil them for) then saute them in butter and a good glug of port wine. Delicious.

My mum would always insist we ate our sprouts... and carrots

It wasn't until I was caring for her in her later life that she would insist "I hate sprouts" and then sometime later "I don't like carrots either"

Mums - what would we do without them Laughing Laughing

Boil them in beer before you deep fry them - make sure you have plenty of beer in just in case you run out. Alays better to have too much beer than too little.

I do sprouts by putting them in the bin and leaving them there for a few days, then transferring to a larger bin, and then they are taken away by an even larger bin on wheels

Sound horrible. But i'm intrigued....

With a bit of salt and pepper? Or sauce? Cold gravy?

Wot he said.


I tried a new recipe tonight: Dice some streaky bacon and fry then chop your sprouts into discs about 5mm thick and chuck them in the pan with the bacon and throw in a decent knob of butter. Delicious, but if you have some tinned cooked chesnuts bung them in the pan with a small grating of nutmeg.

This is really nice, I kid you not.

OK, you don't have to put the chesnuts and nutmeg in but you could throw in a decent glug of whisky instead and flambe it.

PS: try the whisky first to make sure it is a good one!

I did mine last year with smoked bacon lardons, hazelnuts and cream - made them nearly bearable
