Fresh Brussels sprouts offer up nutty, savory, cabbage-like flavor and, when used in compact sizes available at The Chef’s Garden, they have none of the bitterness that gave this luscious, flavorful vegetable a bad reputation. Choices include green Brussels sprouts, red Brussels sprouts – and a mixture. This vegetable looks like a tiny round cabbage, with tightly folded leaves. Baby Brussel sprouts, harvested after a frost, have been compared to grapes from a fine ice wine.
Typically in season from the first frost through February.
