Just what in the world is a sprout? I take that is Dinger slang?

a sprout is like a small cabbage about the size of a new potato. is rather unpleasant and sane people only subject themselves to it on christmas day

 

full name is brussels sprouts.

 

(he may have meant something else though.....)

Sprouts are one of the most under-rated of the brassica family. They only have a bad press because people eat them for Christmas dinner but usually put them on to boil on December 5th. Steam them until they're tender for the classic roast dinner accompaniment and once you've savoured the flavour you can start with more involved recipes such as stir-frying them with streaky bacon and soy sauce. Bloody marvellous mini-cabbage bastards.

 

Although to me Christmas dinner wouldn't be complete without tinned potatoes. One of those things that my mum always used to include simply to give us a bigger dinner, they're also great but I concede in this case that once a year will suffice.

I can't believe I'm actually going to give a serious answer to this but the sprout theme saw its first real outing on the forum from BattleMetalChris (a Dinger) and has since spread to have become widely used by forumities. Its common usage it to show that a post or thread is so utterly devoid of any interest that you'd rather talk about how you like sprouts than the subject raised.

 

Hope that helps.

Sprouts. Turkey. If they had any value then we'd eat them all year around. Personally, I refuse to eat either, whatever the season.

I've chosen ribs to be my choice with pint or four beers. It's the first day of my holidays after all.

Cleaning the bathrooms of Waterloo station with a toothbrush can be more enjoyable than playing WoT on a Sunday night, frankly.

to clarify further they were button sprouts, smaller and slightly sweeter than the larger version.

Suffice to say the resultant gas build up means I am not too popular in work today.

Worth it though 'cos they were bloody tasty!

Can somebody explain to me in which countries Sprouts are usually associated with Christmas? I actually unironically enjoy those little basterds (especially with the above mentioned bacon) but have never limited them to any specific season or holiday. They are a bit tricky to cook in my opinion since if you undercook them its like chewing on hard cabbage and if you overcook them its just like tasteless mush.

Oh yeah, also moved to Off Topic.

I see: our moderator complains about PFANNKUCHEN threads, but he is deeply involved into sprouts...?!

Sprouts are associated with crimbo in the UK.  This is partly due to them being in season at that time of year & they can also survive a ground frost so were available fresh from the garden.  Traditionally sprouts needed cooler temperatures to grow but due to modern farming techniques they are now available year round.  Did you know there are 110 varieties of sprout?  You do now.

Well thanks for the info, now I do know that there are indeed 110 varieties of Sprouts. Thanks to both Hamsters for the info.

I'm not into sweets really and I complain only if/when they are posted in the Gameplay section for some reason.
