See Eat Your Brussel Sprouts for background information

  1. I brought home a couple of hazelnuts from Ireland which I intend to try to grow. I’ll call you in 25 years and we can have a feast!

    • Peadar, did you go out to the hazel wood, because there was a fire in your head? And did you cut and peel a hazel wand and hook a berry to a thread, as well? And if so, did you catch a silver trout and roast it over an open fire?

  2. i didn’t know i liked brussel sprouts until this recipe! amazing!!!! so good!!

    • Actually, several people have commented that 2 teaspoons of salt might be a little too much. I tend to agree and have changed it to1 teaspoon. If you like it salty, by all means use 2!
