Interesting Food - Sprouts - Christmas Fact

This year the UK has a bumper crop of Brussels sprouts.

Brussels Sprouts
(An unseasonably warm autumn (we are on track for it to be the warmest year ever since records began in 1910), and a (so far) mild winter means that they are not only bigger, and earlier, but there are plenty of them too.

Despite their bad reputation for causing flatulence, the UK eats around 434 million Brussels just in December.  They are the Christmas staple veg.

Added to that, Marks and Spencer have released a Brussels Sprout smoothie as part of their Christmas food range. Yummy!)

!Note - I checked in my dictionary, it is definitely meant to be spelt Brussels sprout, not brussel sprout.
