So, my garden was hit and miss this year. Injuries and depression do not make for a great garden.
Certain things, however, did well. Mainly the ones that thrive on neglect. One of which is Brussel sprouts. I planted four plants, and decided to harvest one for Christmas dinner.
Behold the Brussel sprout sword.
So these are pretty tiny, half-inch or so, but delicious. I tried one right off the stalk and it was nice and crunchy.
I probably could have extended the season by just cutting the sprouts off, but I was lazy and my ankle hurt, so I pulled the entire thing.
That is the smallest hotel pan, the one-ninth one. So it was about an amuse bouche size. but, I sautéed with shallots in bacon grease, and they were yummy!
