Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Cherries Recipe
  • Heat wine and add dried cherries. Set aside.
  • Prepare sprouts: remove any damaged leaves; trim any long stems but leave enough stem so the sprout holds together. Cut in half lengthwise.
  • Cut bacon into narrow strips or dice. Cook in skillet until crisp. Drain off all but 1 tablespoon of fat.
  • Add sprouts with cherries and wine to bacon. Stir to mix, and cook (medium-high) until liquid has evaporated and sprouts are just tender, 2 to 5 or more minutes, depending on size of sprouts. Don't overcook or they will be mushy and strong-tasting.
  • Serve hot.
