Brussels Sprouts (1lb)
Eden Valley Growers, Inc. established in 1956, is a vegetable growing farm cooperative. With farms and a distribution facility, located approximately 20 miles south of Buffalo, in Eden, this “co-op” provides cooling, marketing, and distribution. Most of the members are fifth, sixth, & seventh generation farmers.
Eden Valley, the oldest food hub in New York, works hand in hand with its grower families and to provide the best locally grown produce! They believe: “Homegrown Produce is Homeland Security.”
Do not wash or trim sprouts before refrigerating them. Yellow or wilted outer leaves may be removed before storage, however. Refrigerate Brussels sprouts in plastic bag up to 1 week.
Preparing Brussels sprouts for cooking begins with cutting the buds off the stalk and removing any surplus stem and loose surface leaves. Once cut and cleaned, the buds are typically cooked by boiling, steaming, stir frying, grilling, slow cooking or roasting. To ensure even cooking throughout, select buds of a similar size. Some cooks make a single cut or a cross in the center of the stem to allow the heat to penetrate the solid core so that it cooks as quickly as the leaves.
- MICROWAVE: place 1/2 pound of sprouts in dish and add 1/4 cup water, cover and cook. Medium sized for 4 minutes and larger ones for 8 minutes.
- STEAM: Steaming retains all the nutrients and minimizes odors. Sprouts can be added to an inch of boiling water or can be placed in a covered vegetable steamer. After steaming for 1–2 minutes, uncover pot for 10–15 seconds. Re-cover pot and continue cooking sprouts for 5–10 minutes in boiling water or 6–12 minutes in a steamer. Check them periodically by poking them with a fork to test for doneness.
- ROAST (our favorite method): Cut sprouts in half (smaller sprouts) or quarters (larger sprouts) and toss in oil, salt and pepper. Roast in the oven at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes (flip halfway through).
- SAUTE: Add halved sprouts and spices, salt and pepper are just fine to hot olive oil - we like a cast iron pan for this method. Continue to cook and stir until the Brussels sprouts are deep dark golden brown.
- SHRED: Carefully slice the Brussels sprouts by hand or with the slicing blade of your food processor. You’ll want to remove the nubby ends and any discolored leaves first. Add shredded sprouts to salads or stir fry dishes.
- Common toppings or additions for Brussels sprouts include Parmesan cheese and butter, balsamic vinegar, honey, or chili pepper.
