Brussle sprouts, as you all know, are a like a miniature cabbage. If picked young, they are tender and yummy, especially with something like a Bearnaise, or Hollandaise sauce spooned over the top. The acidity of the sauce helps balance the brussle sprout flavor. A little dill goes good as well.

I like brussle sprouts poached in clarified butter, with a bit of garlic.

PriFi, I think that you should experiment with brussel sprout ice cream. I mean, after all, ogres use ear wax as a condiment. How bad can it be?.

I don't live at my Mom's anymore...I don't have to eat them and you can't make me. I eat enough cabbage, kale and broccoli to satisfy the brassica crowd. If I started eating brussels sprout that wouldn't leave any for you.

Okay, I am out of catch phrases...

Oh! You can have my share of cauilflower, too!

But, I love hominy, in or out of posole.

How did this tasty thread about hominy become rancid with talk of the Hannibal Lecter of food??

No idea! I thought hominy was a far cry from "the Hannibal Lecter of food".

I thought it went; "I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti."

Yup, I just watched the YouTube video. It was fava beans. Oh, and I agree, we should get back to the topic of Hominy.

To get hominy without the funny can texture try this product

It is corn that has undergone the nixtamal process and had the skins removed then dried. It can be found in Mexican markets. To use it soak overnight, then simmer is water until soft (about 2 hours).
