Storage, Preparation and Cooking Tips
• Brussels sprouts are best kept in your refrigerator crisper for about 5 days between 0-4°C. They are sensitive to ethylene, which can turn them yellow so be careful what you store them with.
• To prepare, wash the Brussels sprouts and slice them in half to reduce cooking time.
Brussels sprouts can be enjoyed roasted, boiled, or added to a favourite recipe.
