❁ Choose firm, compact Brussels sprouts that are green and heavy for their size. They look like tiny cabbages.
❁ Brussels sprouts are available as individual sprouts or still attached to the stalk. Choose sprouts that are the same size so they will cook in the same amount of time.
❁ Avoid wilted or blemished sprouts and those with yellow leaves.
❁ Brussels sprouts may be lowest cost and best quality from October to December.
❁ Frozen Brussels sprouts are easy to keep on hand and might cost less at some times of the year.
