The sprouts I bought last week and delivered to me
The sprouts I bought last week and delivered to me on the Wednesday were O.K. taste-wise but they were not of a consistent size and were not as fresh as I would normally go out and buy - the secret of knowing if they are fresh is where they are cut with the knife - if fresh, then flesh is clean, and if a week old, the flesh is dark brown where the knife has cut through. Not only that there was a fair bit of waste this week and not of the best quality. As the weather is rough and not good to go out on the land myself, I will try another pack, but well done to the farmers for keeping us moaners supplied.
Buy when grown in UK and in season
I'd suggest people buy these when they have the British flag on them and are in season (Jan, Feb, Oct, Nov, Dec) for a better chance and getting a good sprout.
These sprouts will not grow on you
I am 70 years old have eaten sprouts since I was a young boy. These sprouts are the worst I have ever eaten, they are loose, a good sprout needs to be tight.They are very dirty, by th time you have finished peeling them there is almost as much waste as there is product. Will buy my spouts from somewhere else from now on. Very disappointing
These sprouts were about the best I have ever tast
These sprouts were about the best I have ever tasted and I couldn't stop eating them! Even after my dinner I went into the kitchen and finished the leftover sprouts. They are a good size, extremely tasty, and have a wonderful texture. These are going to be my choice of sprouts for Christmas Day lunch.
Look good, tasteless.
Grown in MORROCO!! Look good, utterly tasteless. I thought sprouts were supposed to be better in cold weather after a frost!!!
Sprouts had gone off.
The sprouts we collected on Click and Collect this morning were terrible and looked well past their sell by date.
I LOVE SPROUTS BUT THESE WERE AWFULL ON MY LAST ORDER.THEY WERE SO STRONG TASTING I COULDNT EAT THEM,EVEN MY CHICKENS WOULDNT EAT THEM.
Nice Brussel Sprouts
Sometimes in your online shopping you get a nice bag of button sprouts and then other times you get a bag of huge sprouts Anyone who knows anything about vegetables knows that hard button sprouts are much fresher and nicer, once they have been allowed to grow out to large sprouts before picking they become bitter to taste. It's hit and miss which ones you get in your shopping.
Brilliant for freezing
Upon receiving wash and peel, blanch for 4 mins in salted boiling water then plunge into ice bath, drain and pat dry, place into freezer until u wish to use, otherwise wash and peel, boil in salted water until as you prefere and enjoy. AJG
Excellent brussel sprouts with a good texture and a flavour which is exactly as it should be. To be eaten at their best, they only need a small amount of cooking, preferrably steamed as this helps retain the flavour and colour of the sprouts. They are also versatile and a definite plus to most main meals. Add a knob of butter and a dash of freshly ground black pepper when they are removed from the heat and you have a vegetable that is insurpassable.
