Brussel Sprouts - Pink Inside
I bought a sack of brussel sprouts, cleaned and blanched them 4 minutes, then froze.
I notice that some of them have pink-ish leaves inside, some do not. Is this a sign of some of them being riper than others.
It could be the variety. There is a red variety called Rubine, and I've frequently had regular sprouts that had slightly reddish or pinkish leaves...but always on the outside. Cool temperatures and strong light can cause a build-up of anthocyanins, a reddish plant pigment. However, if its pink on the inside and green on the outside, I've never seen that before.
