Brussels sprouts get a bad rap. For whatever reason, they’re depicted in movies and books as being gross, or at least on the bottom of the vegetable heap.
For people who know how to cook them, though, Brussels sprouts are super tasty!
Cooked and raw Brussels sprouts have general freshness expectancies. You never want to push things too far, so buying and eating fresh is essential.
Cooked vs. Raw Brussels Sprouts
Grocery stores do a good job of stocking fresh sprouts, and they keep them looking nice by spritzing them with water every so often.
When you’re stuffed at a nice restaurant or the kids don’t want to polish off the last of the sprouts, some eventually find their way into your refrigerator.
