I just got a ton of vegetables in my CSA box yesterday including brussell sprouts, I cleaned, blanched and then froze them. In my opinion you can do that and they will be just fine. Your sentence got cut off so I don't know the rest of the question.

You can cut the sprouts into strips and sauté with bacon bits in olive oil and butter. Cook 90 percent, freeze or store in a ziplock and reheat for the big meal.

Another super yummy option is to pickle them

You wouldn't have a recipe for that, would you?

No need for desperate measures as they keep very well. I just picked the last of them from the garden last week and I know they will be fine for Christmas dinner. Like cabbages, they hold well in a cold place.

Since we're only days from Christmas, I'm agreeing with others that they should be fine. No way would I could a Brussels sprout early, and if they're almost gone now...well, they'd be as good as gone in my book.
