Not everyone likes Brussel Sprouts


Brussel Sprouts

I hate Brussel Sprouts! They are the devils food and there maybe a scientific reason why.

There is gene mutation that exists in about 50% of the world’s population that cannot detect the bitter chemical, similar to Phenylthiocarbamide (PCT), in Brussel Sprouts.

Hence only ‘mutants’ enjoy Brussel Sprouts, which is what I have always suspected.

    You heathen. Nothing like Brussel Sprouts sliced in half, blanched and then sauteed with bacon grease / butter, a little salt and fresh cracked black pepper. Maybe your disdain is that you ate them boiled to to death as a child?
