    Dawns sprout thread reminded me, i've been buying sprouts tops from my local greengrocer - they're absolutely delicious and not expensive at all, they costs me around 55p for maybe 1/2 a dozen or so.

    You chop off the hard stalks, slice and wash the leaves then chuck in some boiling water or steam, when they're done add a small knob of butter if required. They don't wilt as much as cabbage so don't leave them for ages expecting them to.

    Really, they are lovely and they have teensy teensy tiny sprouts on too!

    I hate sprouts and cabbage but the sprout tops look quite nice! What do you make them with?

    all they sell is fruit and veg is in a shop, nothing else - how amazing is *that*?!
