Hey Buzzers! Hope someone's around to answer this question. I bought a whole stalk of brussels sprouts tonight, only to realize that it won't fit in my fridge. Do you think it would be okay to pop the buds off the stalk and bag them til I need them?

Pan-fry Brussels sprouts in butter and crispy bacon for a smoky addition to your vegetable side dish. You can add a little of the bacon grease to the dish if you prefer.

I will be cooking them either tomorrow or Sunday. I've made the recipe above before and really like them but am open to other recipe suggestions.

They will be fine if you "pop the buds off." Most places sell them off the stalk.

Thnx BD! I know it's a silly question but wasn't sure if the stores treat them with something to keep them from going south quickly. :)

I'd place them in a ziploc bag with a paper towel and not seal the bag all the way. The paper towel will collect any unwanted moisture.

Agree with bd.weld. Love those sprouts.

I have bbought them this way and could not fit stalk in fridge, so I cut the stalk about half way up, voila, the two shorter stalks fit fine. I also have popped the buds and stored them. Either way is fine. So good when they are fresh and not overcooked to mush.
