    I hope brussel sprouts have a lot of nutritional value so you get some vitamins for your trouble.

    There are certain vegetables that I just don't get and brussel sprouts are one of them. Yeah, that and artichokes. Okra is ok, but only if it is chopped up and put into stews.

    Next time, Beano FTW! I always take it before beans/cabbage/brussle sprouts/brocolli etc to tame the gases.

    We have unusual kids. Ages 6&8 and they both love brussle sprouts and artichokes. Trick is to cook them correctly. For brussel sprouts, just half them and saute in a bit of butter in a covered skillet for 5 minutes. Perfectly cooked. If you cook them much longer, then you get the awful smell, texture goes to hell and it is just nasty. IMHO.

    My ex-boss used to call them "wretched little cabbages".

    I love the stinky little things, as long as they're not cooked so much that you can mash them against the roof of your mouth with your tongue.

    Overcooked Brussel Sprouts taste sulfurous, but cooked right, they have a delicate cabbagy flavor.

    Kimchee tastes nothing like sauerkraut. Although it's so blistering hot, it's hard to get to the taste....

    I loooove sauerkraut. But I worry about What Might Happen if it were mixed with brussel sprouts at the same time.

    I love Brussels sprouts, especially when they are over-cooked until they turn gray! Can't explain it, but way back some 40 years ago, I used to often eat lunch at a great little mom-and-pop cafe that kept the poor little things in the steam table for hours. Learned to love them that way.

    I take Brussels Sprouts and shred them in a food processor, saute them in olive oil with chopped onion until the spouts are bright green and just starting to get soft. Experiment with herbs and seasonings. Also good if you chop and cook a slice of bacon and add a bit of canola oil to cook the onion and sprouts, no olive oil.
