Caramelized Brussels Sprouts

The Brussels sprout is a member of cabbages grown for its edible buds. The green leafy vegetables are typically 2 to 4 cms in diameter and look like mini cabbage.As per Wikipedia  these have been popular in Brussels, Belgium and may have originated and gained its name for there. The Brussels sprouts contains excellent levels of Vitamin C and Vitamin  K. The most common way to cook these sprouts is cutting the buds. Once cut and cleaned they are cooked in boiling water or steaming or stir frying.
