|Great Northern Beans: Fully|
Sprouted. 3 days.
Almost any seeds, nuts and beans will sprout. Some of my favorites are almonds, chickpeas, adzuki beans, and great northern beans. You don't necessarily have to buy special products made for sprouting - usually products straight out of your normal bag or bulk bin will sprout.
|It's always cheaper to buy in|
bulk - check out the bulk bins
of your health food store.
|Store your sprouts in a|
dark spot - I usually keep
mine in the corner away
2. The next morning, strain all the liquid out. Rinse and drain the liquid out again. Invert the sprouting jar in a bowl so that it will continue to drain and place back in a dark spot.
3. Rinse and drain 2-3 times per day. Once fully sprouted (this depends on what you chose to sprout), remove from jar and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for one week.
On Eating Sprouted Nuts: Enjoy them raw or lightly steamed. Eat a handful with an apple, toss in a salad, over toast, throw in a smoothie - there are thousands of uses!
|Sprouting Adventures... these|
white beans are ready to enjoy.
*Sometimes I've found that sprouted beans shed their skin during the cooking process. If you beans shed their outer skin you can skim it out with a small fine mesh strainer. If you're going to be pureeing your beans don't worry about this step.
