    Of course this can be made using fresh Brussel Sprouts!! Simple cook them to "crisp tender" and proceed.... Most frozen vegetables--prior to freezing-- have been blanched ( brought to a boil for a few minutes) to halt enzyme activity, and prevent spoilage. Read your old standard Cook Books Folks! - 9/9/13

    We liked this. I used Walnuts instead of pecans. They are our favorite. I also cut the sprouts in to fourths so the flavour goes to the center. Next time I will add in some crumbled bacon. We like to eat sprouts often. We prefer our sprouts soft so I micowave them. Then finished the recipe, - 10/1/13

    I like to use fresh Brussel sprouts. Right now, Trader Joe's has some beautiful Brussel sprouts on a long stalk and you can take off what you need. It tastes so much better than the frozen product! I didn't have any pecans, so I used walnuts instead, this is really great as a side dish and delicious - 10/1/13

    I really liked the flavors even though I substituted dried sage for fresh. Next time I'll cut the sprouts in half because the cranberries and pecans fell to the bottom and I had to keep scooping them up while eating. It was so easy to make, filling, and I'd make it again. - 4/2/16

    Love the additions to Brussels that you made. I start with fresh Brussels usually. This is a good way to make frozen ones better though. Dates are a good addition if want something other then cranberries. They melt right into the pan and add sweetness and don't even realize they are there. - 1/17/17
