Freezing Brussel sprouts

domaine, Aug 21, 9:43am
Has anyone successfully frozen Brussel sprouts so when cooked , later, are as close to as good as prior to freezing?

Not very successful ever,but if you use small VERY firm heads, blanch Quickly,throw into icewater, drain and free flow The result will be acceptable.
Only worth it if you grow your own.

I bought some frozen ones last year. Might be Watties?. Anyway they were dreadful.

Yes they are, best to put them straight in the compost and stick to cabbage.

I love them too & have had a brilliant crop this year, the birds have decimated the spinach & silver beet, so I've relied heavily on sprouts, cabbages & lettuces for winter greens. I would never freeze them though, because I think they'd never be nice to eat . sprouts, to me are . fresh or go with out.
