Brussels Sprouts...


 Brussels Sprouts....tiny little cabbages...so cute and so tiny....these are great this time of year and a great addition for the holidays....use them in soups and in stews....a lot of people think they don't like them...but really it is just little cabbages....they taste so good!!!


They grow on a stalk, right out of the sides.....(.I didn't really know that)


you cut off the great big leaves and you are left with a stalk and little cabbages....



there is a million of them on each stalk...plenty for dinner and to put in the freezer...cut them off the stalk and....


put in the top of a double boiler....you want to bring the pot to a boil and boil for 5 minutes...just par cook....


cook until just bright green....then run under cold water to stop the cooking....


cut in half and cook in a fry pan over medium heat in a couple tablespoons of butter until browned and fragrant.....Next is a recipe for browned crackers....I learned to do this many years ago by an elderly German lady....


....melt a couple of tablespoons of butter in a pan....medium heat...


add broken up saltines....and brown...they will soak up the butter and ...


brown very nicely....make plenty..you will be surprised at how good they are, and you want to have enough for yourself your guests! you will love them!

salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!!!!!
So good!

Cheers to Happy  !!
