Braised Brussels Sprouts, Quirky Cooking

Braised Brussels Sprouts and Second Chances

I can’t remember where I was the first time I tried Brussels sprouts, but I do remember the bitter flavour made even worse by the over-boiled texture. I was in my early twenties, and having grown up in Lebanon, Brussels sprouts were new to me. It certainly was not a culinary revelation. For many years, I avoided the vegetable, deterred by its sulphurous smell and the soggy memory of our first encounter. But this is why forgiveness and second chances are so important.
