How to store Brussels sprouts
The best way to store Brussels sprouts is to keep them in a cool, dark, and well-ventilated place. Here are a few ways to store Brussels sprouts:
Refrigeration: Once the Brussels sprouts have been cleaned and trimmed, they can be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container or plastic bag for up to a week.
Freezing: Brussels sprouts can also be frozen for long-term storage. To freeze, blanch the Brussels sprouts in boiling water for 2-3 minutes, then cool them down in ice water, drain them, and place them in airtight containers or freezer bags and store in the freezer for up to 8 months.
Fresh: If you have just picked or bought fresh Brussels sprouts, store them in a perforated plastic bag in the refrigerator for no more than a couple of days before using them.
It's important to note that if the Brussels sprouts are visibly damaged or show signs of mould, they should be discarded.
Also, if you are storing fresh Brussels sprouts, make sure to remove any damaged or discoloured parts as they can cause the good ones to spoil more quickly.
Before storing, it's best to trim the stem end and any yellow or damaged leaves as well.
