I ended up with a nice pile of Brussels sprouts. Just over a pound, 5 cups. They taste really really delicious raw! Mild. Like sweet tender broccoli. I think the many nights of hard freezes sweetened them up perfectly. Now I need to find a recipe for roasting them. Since they taste so good raw, I think a simple recipe will work fine.
Its my first year of growing Brussels sprouts that have matured. I've tried 4 or 5 years now. For me, the trick was to start the seeds in May, use lots of composted manure, and grow the plants in full sun. It's a long process.
