Brussel sprout stalks -- edible?

Marc Wallace | Dec 19, 200308:15 PM

I keep seeing brussel sprouts sold on their stalk for what seems a reasonable price -- if the stalk is actually edible. (if not, then it's just like buying "tomatoes on the vine", which taste incredible but do cost more).

I've had zero luck finding any recipes that use the stalk. Most searches I've done result in descriptions like "cut an X in the stalk", referring just to the hard base of each sprout.

Anyone have suggestions?
