How to stop sprout eaters smelling. Farmer tests out mthod on Grandson.

London, Dec 24: A farmer has suggested a five-point method of cooking sprouts, which helps them retain their nutritional value and prevent its eaters from smelling. Freda Neale, the sprout producer from Burscough, Lancs, claims that her method also makes the food taste better.

Her five-point formula includes peeling of the outer layer, removal of the base, boiling sprouts in water with half a teaspoon of salt, cooking for 6-8 minutes, and chewing each mouthful at least ten times.

Freda, who has been testing her method on her two-year-old grandson Jack Makinson, says that what matters the most is the type of sprouts bought, and the way they are cooked.

“Overcooking causes chemicals in the sprouts to react and emit sulphur. This gives them their bitter taste and makes them — and those who eat them — smell,” she said.
