Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts, do not grow on the ground as a lot of people think, because they look like miniature cabbages, but they grow on the sides of a thick vertical 2 to 4 foot stem. See more about them below.

More About Brussels Sprouts:

Brussels sprouts are members of the cabbage family, which they resemble in miniature form.  They are a good source of dietary fiber and protein, vitamins A and C, and potassium, iron and a small amount of calcium.  Like other cruciferous vegetables, Brussels sprouts have been shown to have cancer prevention properties.  When purchasing, select tightly compact, firm heads with good color and without a strong odor.  See nutritional charts below for raw and cooked Brussels sprouts.
