Brussels sprouts

Brussels sprouts are miniature relatives of the cabbage. They grow on long thick stalks, from which they must be picked off, usually by hand. In the UK, they are a traditional winter vegetable, and are usually eaten boiled with a roast dinner. They can also be made into soup.

According to a survey in 2002, Brussels sprouts are Britain's most hated vegetable. Strangely, most British people freely choose to eat them on their main traditional feast day.
