Re: Brussels sprouts. ( how to cook so they don't stink the whole place out).

Thank you all again for the good suggestions, and just want to say I did them in the pressure cooker, with salt and a small bayleaf.
I brought the water up to boil first then put the sprouts, salt and bayleaf in, lid on and once the pressure was up, I steamed them for approx 5 minutes and plunged the pot into cold water to stop them cooking further.

They were cooked through enough to please us all and were even still a nice bright green as opposed to being almost yellow like my Mum's murdered ones, but best of all, there was almost zero smell, so very glad about that. What the after affects will be I don't know, time will tell, but I won't so could leave them after clearing up, knowing they don't have to suffer a foul smelling home.

I think the short but intense cooking time plus the bayleaf really made that difference, cheers.
