Leave them in the ground - they'll be fine, even if we get heavy snow. Don't cut the stalks, pick the sprouts off the stalks as you need them, starting with the bigger ones at the bottom and working up to the smaller ones (which will continue to grow a bit bigger in milder spells).
Pick by putting your thumb on top of the sprout and pushing downwards. Fingerless gloves are good in the cold and frosty weather.
And you can take the top clump of leaves out of the top and use them as you would spring greens or cabbage leaves. Delicious.
Very good looking sprouts by the way. Congratulations
