Heads up - Marmite sprouts!

Recommended Posts

I could understand the idea of frozen sprouts at Christmas if you lived in Australia, but here? They're one of the few things still available fresh locally at this time of year. Also, while I'm sure these are lovely, half a teaspoon of marmite in your gravy would probably do better.

I am going to try growing sprouts next year.  A couple of years ago I tried growing them but the plants seemed to develop a severe attack of baldness and produced nothing.  The year before that, I tried growing them but the plants seemed to develop a severe attack of baldness and produced nothing.  However, I live in hopes that if I keep doing the same thing, I will eventually get a different outcome.

They’re far better with chestnuts in them. Keep the marmite for the gravy...

Fresh sprouts, 5 mm-deep single cut across the bottom, drizzled with Soy sauce, liberal sprinkle of rough ground sea salt, steamed 12 mins or to taste.

Tremendous.
