Brine for 1 hour.

I only had enough to make half recipe but I trimmed and cut the sprouts in half and I think it helped them to absorb salt better. I then mixed oil wth balsamic vinegar and a little minced garlic and sprinkled with bacon bits after roasting. The balsamic and pancetta was suggested by one cook. BEST Brussels sprouts I ever had! Thanks for sharing your ideas! Read More
