Brussels sprouts are the buds that grow along the stem of the brussels sprout plant. They are edible raw or cooked, and the leaves of the plant are edible as well. Brussels sprouts look like small cabbages, and they are closely related!
Brussels sprouts will keep for a couple of weeks in an unsealed bag in the fridge. To freeze, wash well and dry. You can freeze them whole or chopped in half, however you think you’ll eat them when you thaw them!
Brussels sprouts are very flexible! They can be roasted, sauteed, eaten raw, pickled, and more.
