Yet another recipe from Rachael Ray that I have tweaked a bit. I absolutely love brussel sprouts but will be making them this way a lot more often than any other.

Loving Brussels Sprouts the way I do, I thought I would like this dish. Surprisingly, I didn't, and can't put my finger on why. I don't hate it, but probably won't be fixing again. But thnx for sharing your recipe, Allybee Z. Made for PAC Fall 2009.

This truly is one of those "love it or hate it" dishes. I found it very interesting and would make it again for myself. I probably wouldn't make it for guests or a potluck as it isn't for everyone. It is very colorful with the green of the sprouts, the red of the peppers, and the yellow from the tumeric. Taste wise it is intriguing. I was finding it hard to describe to my hubby before he sampled it and finally came up with "like a bread & butter pickle." It is tart, but has that sweet & then the pickle taste from the mustard seeds. The tumeric is listed in the instructions, but isn't on the ingredient list. I used 1 teaspoon.

This was pretty good. I had some brussels sprouts left from the garden and I've never really cooked witht them before so I wasn't sure what to expect. The only changes I made... I used a yellow onion, didn't have any red bell pepper so I used three little pepperdew peppers (sweet/spicy pickled pepper), I also added a small chopped carrot (just because:).
