Sounds promising I like the honey [adore honey ] but wouldn’t put it in as Dom wouldn’t like it. I add cooked chestnuts to my sprouts…old hat I know, but anything to get a few chestnuts in my meal and I like the sweet and sour effect too. I used to cut the base of my sprouts but these days I cook them whole and up until crunchy…[Read more]
This recipe is by Thomasina Miers of the Guardian. It’s not online (the food supplement, called Feast, doesn’t put all the recipes online) and so I’m copying this for you – I’m not a sprout lover myself

Found this very interesting, Jane, because I have not stopped eating potatoes. Don’t know how much decline in their use is fear of carbs.
