"Sure enough, when he entered the kitchen it was to find Fleur sitting at the kitchen table, in full flow about plans for her wedding to Bill, while Mrs Weasley kept watch over a pile of self-peeling sprouts, looking bad-tempered."

Self-peeling sprouts are a variety of sprout that presumably are able to peel themselves. On 31 August, 1996, Molly Weasley was keeping watch over a bunch of these sprouts that were most likely meant for that night's dinner.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • It is unclear whether these sprouts are meant to be a magical variety that can peel themselves, or merely normal sprouts that Molly enchanted.
