Well I just got back from the farmers market with my stalk of BS!

I almost did not buy them because when we were little we were always told not to pick the BS until after a good hard frost.

We have not had a frost yet so I guess I can see if the cold shock therapy makes any difference!

Try with a few of the little heads. If it isn't as good as it's supposed to be, try putting the rest in the freezer over night.

Let us know how it goes.

I think I may have a way that you will like them. Try thinly slicing fresh brussel sprouts instead of cabbage in coleslaw, my son hates them but he can't tell it's not cabbage when I make them this way. Shredded into mixed green salad is also good. I find the fresh ones much tastier than frozen :)

I'll have all the skeletons and the bloodline, I always dig them out of my kids sardines and save the lot for my last bit of toast. They're my favourite

You too? Unfortunately they don't sell them in packages of two at a time. That is about all I can get down. And don't tell me they are like little cabbages. No they are not! They are Brussel Sprouts. Cabbage I like. I don't like Brussel Sprouts. Can't you folks tell the difference?

Just remembered something else I can't stand. Kidneys!!!!!!! I can eat liver, brawn, sheeps head, trotters, bone marrow etc. but kidneys taste just like pee to me :( Yes I know what pee tastes like! Let just say when so called high school friends give you OJ, it's not always OJ :(
