How to Select Brussels Sprouts:

Brussels sprouts will range in size from about 1 – 1 ½ inches tall. Keep in mind that smaller sprouts tend to be sweeter and more tender than larger ones which have a more cabbage-like flavour. When selecting sprouts, look for bulbs that are compact and green.  Selecting sprouts that all similar in size will ensure they all finish cooking at the same time.

How to Store Brussels Sprouts:

Keep your Brussels sprouts in the refrigerator unwashed and in a closed plastic bag. They are best consumed within the week. The longer they are stored, the stronger their flavour will become.

How to Freeze Brussels Sprouts

To freeze, wash sprouts well, and trim the stem. Remove the coarse outer leaves. Blanch sprouts in boiling water for 4-5 minutes until they turn a bright green. Drain and plunge into an ice bath to halt the cooking process. Drain off excess moisture and pack in airtight containers or freezer bags. Take out as much air as possible. Freeze and use within 12-18 months.
