Ingredients and Variations
BRUSSELS: Choose fresh brussels that have tight leaves, and are free of brown spots or wilting leaves. Remember to trim the ends and cut them in half before cooking. Brussels can also be cooked from frozen.
THE VINEGAR: Balsamic vinegar is a very intense and dark vinegar that comes from Italy. It is sweeter and richer than regular white vinegar is. There is a wide range of varieties with differing price points. Cheaper versions will have added caramel flavors, wine vinegar, and other ingredients
VARIATIONS: Make these brussels with bacon, and with garlic for a more complex flavor. Drizzle with some maple syrup or honey for more of a sweet glaze. Add other vegetables like carrots, parsnips or beets for delicious flavor combinations.
