How I grow Brussels sprouts.

At this time of year, sprouts become very popular in the shops. However, I believe we can’t beat homegrown and in this episode, I discuss how I grow them.

If you would like more information in the history of the Brussels sprouts the Wikipedia page can be found here. I also mention a news article from the BBC of which can be found here.

Love them or hate them Brussels sprouts are here. They are very hardy and grow well in the UK. I also believe they produce plenty of food from only a few plants. Give them a go and let me know what you think.

Personally, I like to steam my sprouts for 5 to 6 minutes. While the sprouts are steaming I will have a pan of sliced chorizo cooking. Once the sprouts are steamed add them to the pan and cook for 1 minute then serve. Delicious.
