Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan and sizzle the shallots for 5 mins until starting to colour. Sprinkle over the sugar, stir well, then add the raisins and vinegar. Simmer for 5 mins to make a sticky mix, then set aside.
  2. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, then tip in the sprouts. Cook for 5 mins, then drain well, add to the shallot pan and toss everything together. Serve scattered with flaked almonds and a sprinkling of paprika, if you like.

I am not a sprout person and only eat them when dining at someone else's house (because I know they're good for you)... Last Christmas I decided to try this and it makes them much more edible!

I'm actually commenting because I'm planning them in to this years menu!

made this for Christmas but wish I'd stuck to chestnuts. The sprouts need longer than said and although it is good to re-heat I missed the mix with chestnuts for the big day.
