    Excellent! Seems like I'm always having to adjust the way I cook recipes to work with food on hand but they still always turn out tasty. I cooked the frozen Brussels in the microwave, steamed the carrots and put them in the pan I had the walnuts, maple syrup, cider vinegar and salt in. Had with yeast rolls and spicy apricot chicken. Very tasty dinner!

    I was one of those people who just couldn't like brussels sprouts--until I made this recipe. Delicious! The finished dish is sweet, but not too. I thought the vinegar might give it a sweet-sour taste, but I didn't find it so. I think the vinegar added some brightness. I made the recipe exactly as written, except for using chopped instead of halved pecans. Next time I will add a source of heat: dried pepper flakes, hot sauce, or ground cayenne pepper when I add the maple syrup. It seemed the chili powder didn't zip it up enough for me. Also, if using chopped pecans, as I did, I would cut back considerably on the amount. Maybe 1/2 cup, or probably 1/3 cup would be plenty.
