I think we all have memories of over-cooked brussels sprouts gracing their Christmas tables. They're not the most popular of vegetables, and it's probably because they're so often boiled to within an inch of their lives. None of us would be our best selves under such conditions. However, treat these babies right and they will make a great addition to a festive feast. A touch of honey, a dash of vinegar and plenty of salt and pepper - that's all you need. Sharpness, sweetness and a little bit of caramelisation from the roasting adds enough flavour to your brussels sprouts that they'll become the star of the show. Can you believe it?
