Tuesday 16 December 2008: Heidi finds nothing and Sarah knows sprouts aren't for everyone and make a lot of people gassy but try just try this recipe!

Sarah says:
I know that many of you think brussels sprouts are nasty and cause too much gas! I agree about the gas but not about the the taste. I totally love sprouts. The photo above indeed makes them look a little nasty - but trust me - this is a great recipe that you all might want to try!
It's not mine I am sad to admit. I stole it from the Moosewood Celebrations cookbook. Basically you take a pound of sprouts (so half kilo). You cut the stems and put a deep X on each sprout bottom with a knife. In a small dish you put half a cup of soy sauce, three tablespoons of honey and about two tablespoons of red wine (dry). In the meantime, you melt about two tablespoons of butter in a sauce pan. You add the sprouts and the liquid mix along with about half a cup of water. You cook let it come to a boil and then turn it to a simmer and put a cover on and let it all cook for 15 minutes. Stir it a few times in between. Take off the cover and let it cook another 10 minutes? Then take some cornstarch and a bit of water mixed and pour it in and stir. It should become a thickish sauce. Voila! Try it! You'll love it! Just not too many at once or you'll regret it when you get into bed!

Heidi says:
Result of the scan of my neck: NOTHING! Back to the beginning. Pain but no cause and so no help. Fabulous.
