|Gustus Brussels Sprouts|
This year to date I've harvested 8.7 pounds of Gustus and 2.1 pounds of Hestia sprouts. And the totals for November and December of 2016 came to 4 pounds of Gustus and 3.6 pounds of Hestia. So that's been 18.4 pounds of Brussels sprouts in the last 3 months! And I need to get out and harvest yet more. I've only found one method of preserving Brussels sprouts that I'm happy with, dehydrating them. Yesterday I sliced up 1 1/2 pounds of them and dehydrated them. It's amazing how 24 ounces of sprouts dries down to 2.4 ounces! But now I've got a jar full of dried sliced sprouts in the fridge. I use a lot of dried peppers, tomatoes, and zucchini to make the frittatas that Dave likes to take for his lunch, now I'll be using dried Brussels sprouts in the frittatas as well. And I think I'll be drying more to make the dehydrated Brussels Sprouts and Carrot Salad that we take backpacking.

Brussels Sprouts Kimchi Actually, I've got a batch of kimchi already burbling away that is inspired by this recipe, but I've made a lot of changes. I'll post my version on my recipe blog if I like the results.
Apple and Brussels Sprouts Salad I like the idea of this salad, although I know already that I'll tinker with it. I would rather use whole fat greek yogurt or creme fraiche rather than nonfat greek yogurt called for the dressing...
Brussels Sprouts with Horseradish and Pomegranate Seeds Hmm, horseradish and pomegranate sound like yummy compliments to sprouts. But I would skip the blanching and broiling the recipe calls for and roast the sprouts in the cast iron skillet instead.
Jalapeño Bacon Brussels Sprouts Gratin OMG, does this look decadently good.
Brussels Sprouts Risotto No tinkering required with this one! And the Brussels Sprouts and Ginger Slaw recipe on the same page looks really good too.
Waldorf Style Brussels Sprouts Salad with Guanciale But wait, there's more! Another salad recipe that looks good to me...
Charred Brussels Sprouts with Brown Butter and Shiso Here's another recipe that I think will adapt well to my cast iron roasting method. I like the sound of the flavors in this recipe but the execution seems rather complicated. I would rather keep things simple.
Brussels Sprout Salad with Toasted Sesame Vinaigrette Yet one more salad that appeals to me.
