I like to sprout lentils and mung beans. I put the lentils and mung beans in separate
containers with water and let then soak overnight, then I dump out the water and rinse the beans and put the back in their containers and let them start sprouting, I see them starting to sprout within a day or so, after several days I start to refrigerate them. I have noticed that sprout mung beans seem to spoil faster so I don't sprout to many at a time.
What is funny about sprouting is that when I was really trying to sprout...the sunflower and pumpkin seeds...sprouted then dried up and got yucky. I have tried chick peas with no luck (all they did was got mushy and they didn't sprout).
Then I had just soaked some lentils to put on salads and my parents came into town so the soaked lentils sat in the refrigerator for a week and when I went take them out (I figured they were bad) I was shocked that not only were they good but they grew and I have been sprouting lentils ever since.
Do you sprout and what do you sprout?
