If I had told you five years ago that brussels sprouts would be a huge food craze circa 2011 – 2013, would you have believed me? I’ll admit, it did take me awhile to warm up to them, after having never even tried them as a child. I had my first sprout around the age of 26 when I received a stalk of them in my CSA box.
