Caramelized Brussels Sprouts and Cranberries

And so begins my second (perhaps annual...check back next year) post on Brussels sprouts, please fine "Cheesy, Chewy, Crunchy, Yummy (I promise!) Brussels Sprouts here http://bit.ly/uINiIC.  Why the continued fascination with mini cabbages?  Because they're so cute and crunchy and grow on the most amazing stalks.  Photos after the jump are a must see (as are the ones of my dog eating a fallen Brussel).  Last year I found the stalks at a specialty market, but this year they were at Safeway!  And the cashier thought they were some sort of artistic Christmas tree...but then I thought, well aren't they?  But the moment did give me the motivation to continue my crusade to popularize this ill reputed vegetable.  It really is delicious.  

This time I played on some classic seasonal flavors and added cranberries and walnuts.  I really loved the combination and have been eating them cold out of the fridge as a snack...which I'm not going to recommend unless you are as sprout supportive as I am.   But warm and fresh this recipe will be a crowd pleaser.
