Brussels Sprout

As its name implies, Brussels sprouts originated in Brussels, gained popularity, and are now available in many countries across the globe. As with most cole crops, Brussels sprout is a heavy feeder, requiring a rich soil that is full of goodness and nutrition to ensure a bountiful harvest.

The tiny, cabbage-like sprouts grow in the axils of each leaf and up the stalk, beginning at the bottom and growing up the main stem. A dusting of frost enhances and intensifies the flavour, adding a sweet, rich element that is best achieved by this cold.

Considered to be a superfood due to their cancer-fighting glucosinolates (which are present in most cruciferous vegetables), they all have a characteristic pungent flavour that seems to be overpowering when overcooked, which gives them a bad reputation. To bring out the best flavours in your home-grown Brussels sprouts, lightly steam or pan-fry along with a sprinkle of nutmeg. They are also delicious when eaten raw.
