You can sprout any seed or grain by “tricking” it into thinking that it’s going to be planted, so it will begin to grow. This destroys the “ant-nutrients” it contains and promotes the growth of new nutrients.
How To Sprout (any grain, seed or bean)
- Soak the grains overnight in water.
- Next morning, pour water out and place them in a glass container.
- Cover with a porous cloth. (They need oxygen to sprout).
- Place them anywhere you wish. (They don’t need light to sprout (in a field, they’d be underground) but they do need some warmth, but not heat.)
- For the next 2 days, every morning and evening, rinse them and put them back in the container. (They need continued moisture to sprout.)
- As soon as the tail appears you can use them for baking or salads, or wait another day or more and use the actual green sprouts themselves.
- If you’re using them for their long green sprouts, then by day 3 place them in sunlight to allow photosynthesis to happen. (Light becomes necessary for continued growth and it’s what turns them green.)
