    Wow- earthy brussels sprouts cooked in a sugar-vinegar mixture- becomes heavenly! Taken from Better Homes & Gardens magazine, and upgraded! Brussels sprouts are hugely popular in Great Britain, where consumption far exceeds that of the United States. The exact origins of Brussels sprouts are unknown, but history places the vegetable in Brussels, Belgium, sometime in the sixteenth century. Thomas Jefferson is credited with introducing Brussels sprouts to the United States. He brought the plant to Virginia from Paris in 1821.

      After reading the reviews I left the water and sugar out. You can still get a nice caramelization of the brussels sprouts without it, which makes them quite tasty.

      Over the top yummy. Made my 5 year old beg for more, and he usually won't touch brussels sprouts. I could eat a ton all by myself. Thanks so much.

      These were delicious! I didn't weigh or measure my sprouts, which I will definitely do next time because I ended up with so much liquid that I had to drain some off. I used half the sugar and only a little water - next time, I think I'll either cut out the sugar altogether or cut back even more (it was pretty sweet) and not use any water. Really great way to make Brussels though! Thanks for sharing!
