It's September already! Time to put the sprouts on so they'll be cooked in time for Christmas!
You're welcome.

Await snow. Wrap grenade status sprouts in the white stuff and use a catapult for best effect..
Aim at awful neighbours..

I love sprouts!

BlackeyedSusan · 04/09/2020 12:56

how do you know when the sprouts are cooked?

If you can still count them, they are not done.

Smoke alarm?

Mine went on on good Friday (hate them though as I find them bitter). You’re cutting it fine!

Mine have been on since this time last year.

It's a family tradition that my dc agree to be 'forced' to eat at least 1 sprout!!
A few of them genuinely love them!
As do I!!

I partially steam them, then fry them in butter, ON THE Day, such a hypocrite for starting this thread!
