Brussels Sprouts Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Brussels Sprouts Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook different types separately and then combine.
