+1. Well put, Kayelle. They have their own evil flavor, no matter how they're prepared.

A bit of pre-conceived opinion, ducky? No, they don't taste like kale or cabbage but they're just as good or as icky in that strangely cruciferous way depending...... And they're so CUTE!

I'm all in! Love to take the sprouts, peel the leaves off, saute them in some bacon fat, drizzle with some maple syrup and some chopped bacon.

They have a bitter flavor that not everyone enjoys.

Those people must have a more developed taste for bitterness. Be glad---- it might prevent you from being poisoned!

"[...] the back of our tongue is very sensitive to bitter tastes. This is apparently to protect us so that we can spit out poisonous or spoiled foods or substances before they enter the throat and are swallowed."

So a Brussels sprout will never poison them.

Actually, it just means they have more taste buds for bitter flavors than the average person, due to natural variation.
