WOW mightyspuds, that salad looks wonderful! I really want to try it!
Questions... Will any type of jar with a lid work, say a bottle that pasta sauce comes in? Are those just store bought legumes? And after they are done sprouting, are the legumes fairly soft?
Thank you! ;D
Yes,any jar will work.Punch holes in lid with a nail,or cover with a cotton cloth,or pantyhose. Yes,plain old storebought beans will sprout.We used the organically grown ones so we were sure no pesticides.
But Ive sprouted beans from mixed bags packaged 1 lb. type grocery store 'soup beans' and they sprout just fine.
We also planted them in garden and they did great,we will do more of that this year,nice cheap seed source.
After sprouting yes they are soft and yummy.
I like the sprouting because its fresh greens,year round,no sunlight needed(ie,wintertime light is plenty from a window),done on kitchen counter and ready fresh in days.Just an amazing thing.
