Hi I have sprouted some, Long time ago I did alfalfa seed and recently mung beans, both are easy. My problem is when I put a hand full of sprouts in a salad the roots make the salad tasteless and dry. I can't do garbanzos, they die
I've had frequent exposure to my mother's sprouting (yep- she's pushing 90 but I can still learn from her). She usually does alfalfa or radish. The radish are fantastically spicy; they bite back!
I just picked up a sprouting jar, with the different size mesh lids for different seed sizes, at a yard sale for a quarter. So I'll be trying it out myself soon. I didn't want to deal with sprout roots tangling in cheesecloth. That was my excuse for not sprouting before. lol

No, I've been tempted, but afraid of failure. Would love some advice from successful sprouters.
