~ sprouts ~

these are on my counter right now
mung bean sprouts
{fresher than any you will find in a store}
sprouted almonds
{they don't grow a sprout, but they are succulent & sweet}

i also like to sprout chick peas

basic sprouting directions:
soak dried beans or raw nuts overnight.
drain in the morning,
then rinse & drain a few times each day.
sprouts need to be kept moist, 
but with good drainage.
i keep mine in a covered colander.

read more sprouting info here

and here's a shaky little video from today
of goose sprouts & duck sprouts

I have bought sprouted mung beans before, but have never tried doing it myself. Looks like it would be fun for the kids too!
