Isn't this a gorgeous head of brussel sprouts. This is one of the reasons I love shopping for produce at my local farmer's market. We've got a small refrigerator and I had to seriously make room for this lovely green vegetable. I was told that I could also use the leaves for a soup. I had no idea that brussel sprouts came like this. My local supermarket charges an outrageous amount for a third of these and not as fun to look at.
I'm looking forward to making my brussel sprouts mixed with water chestnuts.
