Method

Blanch the Brussels sprouts in a pan of boiling salted water for 3 mins, then drain and tip into a bowl of iced water to cool quickly. Drain well again and set aside until nearly ready to serve. Sauté the pancetta in the hot goose fat until crisp. Toss in the sprouts and stir-fry for 2-3 mins, adding the sage to serve.

Really good way to cook sprouts. Cooked them this way last year & they went down a treat, so same again I think.

Made this at Christmas and again with Sunday lunch. Totally brilliant flavours and rich enough that you don't have to faff around with the rest of the ingredients. Very nice - give it a try!

Tried this recipe last year, and will be using it again this year. Lovely crunchy texture & the flavour combination works great.
