Slight magenta cast there, Barr1e :)

And you left some sprouts! (I am the only one in our family who like them...)

Sprouts are one of my favourite vegetables, I think this may have been one of the family members who joined us for lunch.

I was going to adjust the colour of the plate and realised it was a shadow of Father Christmas standing next to me and I don't normally tell fibs. :p :eek:

Much better, and it allows the find red of the cranberry sauce to stand out as well :D

I feel compelled to defend the humble sprout. It is one my favourite vegetables but they are seasonal and definitely seem to benefit from a bit of cold weather. I wonder if the BBC's cartoon sprout has done anything for the popularity of this much maligned vegetable?

What is the real colour of the plate - it does not appear to be white on my calibrated screen

Is that one of those placemats you stare at crossed eyed and Santa & the Raindeer pop out in 3D :D

Actually the young small sprouts this year were exceptionally tasty.. and I think it is because they have not seen a frost.

That magenta colour is how one sees life after too much red wine! :p

I think I'd take a pass on the sprouts as well. :rolleyes: Especially with the after effects from eating them. ;)

For me, cut in half, fried with shallots in a bit of mild tasting olive oil, and pomegranate seeds added towards the end of cooking. Maybe chuck in a few chopped hazelnuts and some citrus zest.
Stimulates both the eyes and the taste buds. *chr

Wow: must try that.

I do like them parboiled then chopped and fried lightly in butter with a few bacon lardons and breadcrumbs.

I made some sprout wine once. Disgusting doesn't begin to describe it. There is still some left - just be grateful that I can't work out how to upload it to the gallery.

You made it once? Maybe it has improved with age. :rolleyes:

Careful - it'll probably blow the cork out of the bottle...

So do I, but unfortunately Jane doesn't eat meat, and they just wouldn't be the same with herrings added. :D

p.s. Sorry for diverting your thread Barr1e

Never a sprout goes to waste in this house, any left are mashed with potato and fried in Butter and Olive oil, bad for cholestorol but ooh the taste :D

I love sprouts, but they are not as good as they used to be many decades ago with their tangy, unique flavour. However, should not the sharp side of the knife be facing the fork;)

Most vegetables (parsnips, leeks, sprouts etc) taste better after a frost. It's supposed to bring out the sugars in them.

Must admit I only buy sprouts on the stalk and after frost, the machines they use to harvest seem to damage the stronger outer leaves.

I enjoyed all the contributions, thanks so much.

When I was young 100's of years ago I couldn't leave the table until I had eaten my brussels. I must admit they became my second favourite vegetable.

Happy New Year
