Love them or hate them, brussels sprouts make an appearance at almost every Thanksgiving dinner.
Brussels sprouts are a member of the Brassicaceae family of vegetables and closely related to kale, cauliflower and mustard greens. These cruciferous vegetables resemble mini cabbages that grow on thick salks with leafy green leaves. Brussels sprouts grow clustered together up and down woody stalks. The stalks can grow 45″ tall!
