We measured the sprouts last night (not counting what hubby kept eating) and had 2 cups from 1/3 cup of beans to begin with. I made a stir fry and used some of the sprouts. We rinsed them and put them back in their little hide-away and low and behold, we still have 2 cups again this morning!! Salad with sprouts tonight!

I am thankful.

When we rinsed them last night, there were little tiny tails on the beans. This morning when we rinsed again, the tails were about 3/4 inches long! My little sprouts are so excited about their little sprouts.

I am thankful.

We soaked 1/3 cup of beans over night and they plumped up to be just under a cup... maybe 7/8ths.

Rinsed well.

Put them in a colandar (as NASFKAB suggested)

Then we put a little saucer upside down in the bottom of a big pot that would hold the colandar.

We put a little water in the bottom of the pot and put the colandar on the plate (I didn't think the beans should actually stand in water)

The lid is on the pot, making a dark environment, and the pot is just sitting out of the way on the kitchen counter.

We will rinse the beans tonight and then check them again in the morning.

Sounds like I may have an experiment coming on! My kids are out of school, so maybe we should try a couple of different methods and see what happens with each. I'll keep you all posted!

I am thankful.

I'm afraid I was that young sprout as well when I last sprouted seeds

Have a look at this link and let me know if it's helpful, if not I'll have a look for another

I soak my beans in room temperature water for 12-20 hours. Then I rinse them and put in a colander. I put the colander in a large pot with some water at the bottom. I cover and put it in a warm place. I have always used metal pots and they sprout in dark. I have not tried any other way. Good Luck!

I am thinking of sprouting some mung beans in the clear plastic container my strawberries came in from the grocery store. What do y'all think? Any pointers. The last time I made sprouts I was a sprout and that's been a long time ago!


I am thankful.
