I'll be happy if most people are raised to be honest, responsible, respectful, polite and friendly. If they don't like some kinds of food IMO that's their problem, not mine, and it's their loss.

To be honest, most people don't know how to cook brussel sprouts. There is a fine line to the finished product. Take liver for example, the more you cook it ,the more it tastes like liver! Sprouts are the same. The more you cook them the more bitter they taste. Just cook them through and no longer. Add butter, balsomic vinigar , what ever, just don't over cook.

When it's roasted with EVOO and lemon juice it almost looks shellacked

To be honest some people actually know what they think about certain foods.

I used to live in the south. I hate grits. I was told hundred of times I just hadn't had good grits (whoever said it cooking them was obviously good). I have yet to find a bowl of grits I like.

Brussel sprouts are little balls of evil. At best I hate them, at worst I gag just putting them in my mouth. I don't care how you cook, don't cook, or cover them. I won't eat them, I don't like them and when I become ruler of the universe they will only be served in prisons (but only to people who talk on their cell phones while driving).

I'm amazed how many people can't seem to accept the fact that others don't like a certain food they like. Then to blame it on their ignorance of how it should be cooked or flavored to justify their position.

I'm OK with sprouts but can't stand beets or cauliflower regardless of how they are cooked.

You guys would not be saying this if you had ever eaten my cauliflower au gratin on grits resting on a bed of brussel sprouts with a side of beets.
