Default brussel sprouts

on a whim, got some frozen brussel sprouts the other day... I haven't had
them in years... I wonder if they would go with my spinach salad? Maybe a
3-4 cooked and diced? I'm now out of spinach, actually used up the bag, so
need some extender.

Why are you buying frozen brussels sprouts during the season they are
fresh in the stores? Maybe they will work in a wilted spinach salad,
but I can't say I'd want to use them in a raw spinach salad. Take a
look at this recipe. Maybe it will give you an idea or two.

I don't think they sell them here fresh... I will look next time.

In the meantime, frozen microwaved brussel sprouts do not smell good... Not
sure I want to eat them now.

I don't mind the frozen ones, I prefer fresh, but will gladly eat the
frozen stuff.

I've begun to think that the food preferences of each person is
dependent upon their personal mouth chemistry. I can't imagine
brussels sprouts being bitter. To me they are sweet and slightly
nutty.

The bitterness comes out in them when they are overcooked.

To be perfectly honest, I've NEVER eaten frozen ones - so I can only
guess what they are like and I don't think I'd like them.

They're bitter when raw, too. At least to me they are. Even cut in
half, brushed with olive oil and placed on a hot grill for about one
minute doesn't negate that bitterness.
