Brussel sprouts with cranberries & hazelnuts

1/2 cup hazelnuts, chopped
2 pounds brussel sprouts
2 tablespoons butter or cooking oil
1/2 cup dried cranberries soaked in hot water for 20 minutes OR 1/2 cup fresh chopped cranberries
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
salt & pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Toast the hazelnuts on a cookie sheet for 10 minutes, turning several times.
Remove the bottom of the brussel sprouts (along with any discolored leaves) and make a cross on the bottom.
Soak brussel sprouts in slightly salty water for 10 minutes (I skip this step frequently).
Steam brussel sprouts for 8 minutes. Then rinse with cold water.
Cut brussel sprouts into bit-sized portions, if desiered.
Melt butter (or oil) in skillet and cook brussel sprouts for 3 minutes.
Mix in honey, mustard, cranberries, nut, salt & pepper. Cook for 5-8 minutes.
