Just eaten 300g of the green delights. All dipped in sweet chili sauce. I love them.

Brussel sprouts and....sweet chilli sauce?!? mellow.gif That's not a combination I see working well in the slightest

I'll eat one or two with my Christmas dinner but that's enough, they're the lowlight of the meal so I'm not going to waste precious room in my stomach

They're good for you and high in iron. Someone suggested a lack of iron may be why I get a lot pf mouth ulcers.

Yes, I constantly had mouth ulcers due to lack of Iron & B12 back in January. Try some multivitamins. You can get 120 for £1 or so.

I like sprouts - especially with bacon and chestnuts!

I always used to not like them but I can tolerate them now, definitely the blandest part of the traditional xmas dinner though.

I actually kinda love these after forever being put off by them, I'd go as far to say their my favourite vegetable in a roast dinner after peas *.

Sprouts are delicious when cooked properly. That means you don't boil them for 20 minutes.

Love sprouts - so long as they're from fresh. Never get frozen sprouts because they're gross!

Loch Fyne do them nicely in a chilli marmalade glaze or something like that, so actually I can see them working with sweet chilli dip.

I don't like brussels sprouts much but they are nice with bacon, which makes them more bearable.

Exactly like most veg they need less boiling - in fact steaming is the best way to cook!

Yes not too hard but not soft either. A little crunchy.

Not having any today or tomorrow. Used to like the little button sprouts but haven't seen any this year.

Yes they would turn too mushy if boiled too much!

They can't be as good as baby sweetcorns / taste earthy and delicious!!

Honestly I don't even mind over-boiled sprouts, I prefer them too soft rather than too hard. x
