    I love Brussels sprouts. I don’t think my mother liked them because I don’t remember encountering them when I was growing up. They weren’t part of our vegetable rotation until my wife and I spent a year in Norway in 1995/96. For most of the time there if we wanted to have a green vegetable it was either cabbage or Brussels sprouts. So we learned to cook Brussels sprouts. Also while we were there my wife learned to make a great curry. But I’ll save that story for the curry episode.

    I just discovered the both of you last week and have listened all the way down to January 2011~! And whoa, new episode. I haven’t listened to it yet but I can’t wait because brussels sprouts are one of my mostest fav vegetables.

    My sister requested brussels sprouts for the holidays. Those poppy seed-hashed brussels sound amazing! I will definitely be adding them to the menu. Thanks for the great show!

    Yes, I think there’s some type of brussels sprouts generational gap where our parents were forced to eat slimy boiled ones and so never served them to us. I discovered them when they were served roasted at a vegetarian supper club that I was in during graduate school. Now I look forward to them every fall! I have since told my mom how wonderful they are and now she loves brussels sprouts too!

    I have a show idea for you – syrups. Of course there’s plenty to say about maple (and all the fake maples) but what about molasses. Seriously, what is molasses? And now the grocery store has agave and all sorts of other syrups.
