How to Choose Brussels Sprouts

While some fear the strong taste of brussels sprouts, others embrace it. The peak season for brussels sprouts is from fall to early spring. Follow these steps to find the best of the bunch.

  • 1. Use color as an indicator of freshness. Brussels sprouts should be bright green with leaves that look fresh.
  • 2. Avoid sprouts with a strong smell or leaves with holes or blemishes.
  • 3. Feel sprouts to make sure they are firm, tight and compact rather than puffy.
  • 4. Make sure the stems are clean and not discolored.
  • 5. Try to choose individual rather than prepackaged sprouts.
  • 6. Store brussels sprouts in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for three to four days.
Buy sprouts of equal size to ensure uniform cooking.
