Trim off outer leaves of brussels sprouts to tight, firm heads. With tip of paring knife, mark an X on stem end to help make cooking more even. If desired, cut large brussels sprouts in halves or quarters lengthwise. Bring water to boil, add sprouts and cook 3 to 5 minutes, until texture is just slightly crunchy to the bite. The color of the brussels sprouts should remain bright green. Serve immediately with melted butter and fresh lemon juice.
