Storing Brussels Sprouts: This is How it Works

If you want your Brussels sprouts to last as long as possible, you must store them correctly. In this article, we will explain where the best place to store vegetables is so that you can use them for a long time.

How to properly store Brussels sprouts

Brussels sprouts taste best when you prepare them freshly. If you want the florets to last as long as possible, it is important to store the Brussels sprouts correctly.

  • Brussels sprouts will keep best if you store them in the vegetable drawer of your fridge. You can also wrap the florets in a slightly damp cloth and then put them in the fridge.
  • Make sure there are no apples or tomatoes near the Brussels sprouts. Since these emit ethylene, the Brussels sprouts would wilt faster.
  • Properly stored, the Brussels sprouts will keep for about four to eight days after purchase.
  • If you want to make Brussels sprouts last longer, you can also freeze the vegetables. To do this, first clean and blanch the Brussels sprouts, shock them and place the cooled florets on a wooden board. Place the board in the freezer and after a few hours transfer the rosettes to a freezer bag – this way they don’t stick together.
  • Frozen sprouts can be stored for about a year.
