- When buying Brussels sprouts at the store, look for leaves that still have their green color intact. They should be closed together tightly and bright green or purple. Don’t buy them if the leaves look wilted or dried out.
- To store Brussels sprouts after you’ve bought them, try to keep them in a cold place—a fridge is ideal, but if you can’t do that, put them in a cool area of your house (like a garage or basement).
- Do not remove outer leaves or wash them until ready to cook.
- When you’re ready to cook them, fill a large pot with water and bring it to a boil over high heat. Once it’s boiling, add the Brussels sprouts and cook them for about 7 minutes until they are tender but still firm.
