[possible problem for late winter repack of this recipe: a fair amount of leaf visible on trees outside the kitchen, looks September-ish] Recipe segment starts on basket of brussels sprouts picked, but not pared down. Recipe in: "Why is it that so many people don't like brussels sprouts? I think it's because they've always had them overcooked."
