I used to really enjoy sprouts - until I got heart failure.

It turns out that the store bought sprouts have been out long enough that there is enough bacteria on them that can attach to my damaged heart valves. From what I have read though, if I made my own, and took the proper precautions of rinsing daily, and only making enough to use as soon as they are ready, then I could have sprouts. But, I haven't done so cause with my heart failure I'm not keeping up with even the basics of daily living and don't have any energy left for making anything extra.

I have sprouted before; it's a fascinating process.

Sprouts can be used on salads and sandwiches; I'm sure there are lots of uses!

I've been sprouting for almost all my life; since I was a pre-hippy in high school (I'm 64). There are so many things you can sprout. That little gizmo you read about (jar and screen) is a good way to do it. I have trays that I can stack in order to do more than one type of sprout at a time. Just make sure to thoroughly rinse and drain your sprouts every day so they don't get moldy.

Here's one of my favorite sprouting websites:

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I got this cool green top for use on a mason jar and a bag of seeds for sprouts. They are starting to sprout. Has anybody done this and how do you use the sprouts? I saw something about growing sprouts in a jar in one of the Clean Eating books or magazines but I can't find it now.
