Yum I love these, Great article.
I found this recipe when I googled. I will try it! Also since we always put cabbage in chow-chow I will also try a sweet version.
PICKLED BRUSSELS SPROUTS
1 qt. fresh Brussels sprouts
Louisiana hot sauce or Tabasco sauce
Remove loose outer leaves and cut a little from stem end. Wash sprouts and put in cooking utensil. Microwave container if using microwave. To 1 quart of sprouts, add 2 tablespoons hot sauce, 1 or 2 teaspoons of salt. Cover with 1/3 cider vinegar and 2/3 water. Bring to a boil for 1 minute.
Sprouts may become too soft if boiled longer. Sprouts may be put in jar and sealed for future use, or they may be used as soon as its cooled. Frozen sprouts may be used, but takes less time for boiling.
