DD and myself really did enjoy the flavour of these sprouts. We really loved the addition of the nutmeg, I was not sure how it would taste with nutmeg, but the nutmeg added a wonderful earthy flavour. These sprouts served as the perfect side to our main dish. This is one great way of cooking sprouts and I will surely be making these again.

prouts are not my favorite vegetable but I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. Watch that you don't overdo the vinegar - I used a bit less than 1 teaspoon. The dash of nutmeg is a nice addition. Served with Boiled Ham, 1/2 baked potato with Greek Yogurt & Chives and Light Corn on the cob.
