Love sprouts.

annep1 Mon 09-Dec-19 12:43:53

Me too. I eat them all the time.

hazel93 Mon 09-Dec-19 12:46:22

Gosh, you sure they will be ready ?? Seems a bit late to me.

We love sprouts. We used to joke that my DMiL put them on about now.

Beechnut Mon 09-Dec-19 13:01:03

Has anyone eaten tinned sprouts? I tried some yesterday, I think Noah put them on 😩

Thanks for the reminder nanasam wink

I started them off last week.
However, we ate those so will have to put some more on to boil (never simmer or steam) grin

I’m embarrassed to confess that I ate 2 bags of sprouts last week all on my own shock The embarrassment being that they were chocolate sprouts destined for GC stockings grin

Seriously, DH and I have very different tastes. He likes his sprouts soft and mushy, I like some texture, but not as hard as restaurants often serve them, where you can’t get a fork in.
So I cook my veg separately. Good job there is just the two of us,

Sains sell frozen chargrilled ones!

We had some frozen baby sprouts last night. (Cooked)
Very nice they were too.

Lisagran naughty naughty
I bought two bags as wellfrom M&S but did hand them over. The DGD shared them around so I did eat some.

nanasam I wondered what the smell was tchgrin

Namsnanny Mon 09-Dec-19 15:30:31

nanasam …^started mine this morning^ as hazel93 said bit late isn't it? grin

Seriously though, what do you mean by starting...??? Preparing them for the freezer maybe?

MamaCaz Mon 09-Dec-19 15:32:44

Can't get them on yet - I love them enough to grow my own, but tried a new variety this year and they are nowhere near big enough to pick yet, and I suspect they never will be!

I suppose I will have to buy some, but I keep putting it off, just in case a miracle happens in the garden overnight ... grin

BlueBelle Mon 09-Dec-19 15:38:33

Oh I don’t like them mushy but I can’t stand the bullets they serve up in restaurants I don’t think they even touch the Boiling water in the saucepan there should be a happy medium

MerylStreep Mon 09-Dec-19 15:54:37

With bacon and chestnuts, yum yum 😊

M0nica Mon 09-Dec-19 16:02:40

When I was child, living in Singapore, our sprouts came in tins. Now I love sprouts, my fave veg but tinned sprouts? yuk!

I have put mine in the slow cooker. They have been there a week or two, should just about be ready for Christmas, but not overcooked tchgrin

Namsnanny Mon 09-Dec-19 16:07:39

MamaCaz … there's a lot of 'baby' sprouts about at the mo!

Went for a meal the other night, and the chef said they are this years Christmas go to veg [confusion] grin

Perhaps yours are that type?

Love ‘em. In fact I love winter food. Parsnips and swede, Cavolo Nero, and winter cabbage - yum yum. Stews and casseroles and roasts.
