In the next paragraph, I’m going to use a potentially scary word. After all, it is French, and it also might make you think you are going to need expensive new kitchen gear to do it (you won’t). Please remain calm, because as you’ll see, I need your help.

I demo’ed this Brussels sprout and apple hash from my cookbook on KCTS recently, and a reader pointed out that the recipe isn’t anywhere on the site. So here you go! Although I think of it as a side dish that goes well with mac & cheese or a rustic soup and salad, I’ve also been …
