I found this recipe here on Recipezaar a couple of years ago. I made it and brought it to my sister-in-law's for Thanksgiving, a meal for 16 people. Everyone raved about it to the point where it is insisted I make it each year! I HATE brussels sprouts but I have to say this is a fantastic recipe - even I eat them! Thanks!!!

These were good and pretty. I used frozen brussels and added a veggie boullion cube to the water with the other ingredients. I really liked the apples and raisins and the crunchy water chestnuts. Over all though the brussels still tasted strong. I think I prefer them masked in a vinegar marinade. But that's a matter of taste. The sweet, soft and crunchy were very nice contrasts.
