I'm going out to LI this weekend... hoping the fresh sprouts (on the stalk) will be in the farmstands!

They come on a stalk?? I thought they grew in a supermarket cause it's the only way I've ever seen them!

One stalk = about 3 pounds of sprouts...
They go for about $3 a stalk at the farmstands on LI...

Wow. I paid $3 a pound at the supermarket. On sale.

I SO miss farm stands.

They were all different sizes so I grilled them in a grill basket for about 20 minutes, tossing them around every 5.





Those little grilling bacskets are great!
I like these for sprouts!
we have four of them... they are perfect!

About (oh H a long time ago) My family lived in Santa Cruz right off the sea cliffs. We heard the waves and the seals from seal rock. Then we had brussel sprout fields behind us and they rotted at the end of the season. I've hated mention of them ever since. That stench.....ugh.

EEEWW!! I cannot even imagine how awful that would smell... just microwaving the fresh ones for a few minutes made the kitchen reek for an hour!

Those little kabob baskets are very nice, but can you close the grill with the handles sticking out or do you have to leave the lid open? I used to have a fish basket for the grill & got rid of it because I couldn't close the grill with it in there. (used it for veggies most of the time)
The kabob basket would allow me to turn the sprouts over without losing half the seasoning the way I do when I shake the basket.

We have a Weber gas grill and I can close the lid with the handles sticking out...
well almost closed... I just raise the lid a little to turn them...
It's not a problem...
They are cheap... maybe $3.99 each or so... at places like Target or BB&B, etc...
I also have one of these, to keep the lid just a little raised...

I pay $3.99 for a small container in the supermarket which is a pretty consistent price. I like to roast them at a high temp with olive oil and salt on a baking sheet. At the end of cooking I added some grated Romano cheese. Lately I've taken to frying up some bacon and using the drippings to mix in with the olive oil on the sprouts. Itsí good either way.
