How to Choose
Look for Brussels sprouts that are vivid green in color and tightly compact, firm heads. Squeeze the head, it should have very little give.

How to Prepare
Remove the buds from the stalk with a small knife. Discard any loose or discolored surface leaves. Wash thoroughly. Cut a small X in the stem end of each sprout, to help ensure the interior cooks in the same amount of time as the exterior.

How to Store
Remove the sprouts off the stalk, but leave the outer leaves intact. Store in the refrigerator in a plastic bag, loosely closed, and they will last a week or two.
