Whisky-Glazed Brussels Sprouts

Author: Canadian Living

Scotch whisky and a pinch of sugar give these sprouts a smoky, mellow flavour. Sprouts are never better than when frosty weather arrives. If you haven't tried buying sprouts still on the stalk, try them this year: they're a fresh treat.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups Brussels sprouts (about 2lb/1kg)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons Scotch whisky
  • 1 pinch granulated sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper

Method

Trim ends off brussels sprouts; cut X in base of each, halving any large sprouts. In large saucepan of boiling salted water, cook sprouts until tender-crisp, about 7 minutes; drain in colander. (Make-ahead: Chill in cold water; drain again and roll in towel. Refrigerate for up to 1 day. Increase cooking time in glaze, below, to 5 minutes.)

In same pan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Stir in whisky and sugar; cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Return sprouts to pan; cook, stirring, until coated, about 1 minute. Stir in salt and pepper.
