Sprouts - a question

Could one use sprouts in making something akin to sauerkraut?

Don't know about German reaction to such a notion, but it would make for a very sour Oklohoman.

I think con-pilot is being a big baby, if they taste horrible they must be doing you good.

My sprouts have been on since yesterday in preparation for the 'big' day.

Brusselís sprouts, nothing a flame thrower will not cure.

Do you cure your bacon with a flame thrower?

I had never thought of applying the technique to sprouts.

Quite right Beaufort, if you haven't got them on by now they will never be done in time.

Quote: By Health and Safety Statute, there must elapse a minimum of three calender days between the consumption of the second helping of sprouts and a visit to the sauna. Where it can reasonably be expected that other people may be in the sauna this period is automatically prolonged to seven days.
Where the sauna has a volume of under 18.5 m3, two standard cylinders of oxygen and a defibrillator must be available.

Well, I guess it's possible, have to stand back a long way so the sugar on the bacon doesn't get too black.

But as I buy my bacon from the butcher, I let him take care of the bacon curing process. I could always ask him if he uses a flame thrower I guess.

As for the sprouts, try it, I'm sure it will work, let me know how it goes.

I have just come back inside from flamethrowing a pan of sprouts, and I have to say, con-pilot, that your recipe is a tiny bit crap.

The only benefit was that the flamethrower dried out the very local atmosphere which was quite unpleasant mist/drizzle with lots of octas at not many feet.

But the sprouts came out of it all not too well.

Best to avoid attempting to cure sprouts in my view.

Let's see here. I'll assume you're currently located in England somewhere? With this assumption one realizes that in England it is currently 19:00/7:00 pm? Which also means it's dark, no?

With all this in mind, you went outside with a flamethrower, to take it to the nasty, and vile, weed at night and in the dark?

Your neighbors might just have called the cops. "Yes, I'd like to report a crazed man with a flamethrower who's trying to cook something it seems."

The police stopped responding to my neighbour's call outs after they had denounced for the seventeeth time that there was a dangerous lunatic at large in my street (me) who actually enjoyed eating well prepared sprouts.

I had eleven cautions, three arrests with subseuqent release, one overall body search and two policemen (we don't have cops) who admitted that they liked sprouts.

(I made up some of the above)

I like the way you are thinking - but charcoal is far more efficient

Basic principle is that if you put cheese on anything, it's delicious. Word is in some parts of the UK, many bracchias were damaged by water flooding their stems and might be in short supply this Christmas.

Brussels Sprouts Gratin Recipe

Yield: Serves 4
Total Time: 1 hour

Sizes of Brussels sprouts can vary dramatically from small to extra large. This quantity difference can affect the results of this recipe. So I've used a weight measurement for ensure consistency with my results. And of course, add more cheese if you like!

Ingredients:

  • about 1 1/2 pounds (680g) Brussels sprouts, halved
  • 2 Tablespoons (30g) butter
  • 2 Tablespoons (15g) flour
  • 1 1/2 cups (360ml) milk
  • 1 cup (100g) grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) mayonnaise
  • black pepper to taste

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  1. Clean, trim stems of Brussels sprouts. Cut in half and keep all of loose leaves. Fill medium stock pot half way with water, bring to boil. Add Brussels sprouts, stirring in hot water and blanch quickly for about 2 minutes or until they turn bright green. Immediate drain. Do not cook Brussels sprouts and make them soft!
  2. In large pan melt butter, then add flour and quickly stir with whisk to combine and remove clumps. Turn off heat.
  3. Add milk, salt, cheese, mayo and black pepper. Stir until cheese is melted.
  4. Add Brussels sprouts and combine with cheese mixture. Pour into baking dish and bake for about 30-45 minutes or until Brussels sprouts are tender.
  5. For extra cheese crust, sprinkle cheese on about 10 minutes before Brussels sprouts are finished.

By a happy coincidence, saw this today and, for some inexplicable reason, thought of some of our American contributors.......purely with regard to the vegetable in question that is....
