Georgia our neighbour at the lake loves to try new things. Among the crafty things she does she writes poetry, stories, water colours, knits, sews etc. We enjoy sharing our thoughts and craft ideas, magazines and recipes.
Last week she showed me the ming beans she was sprouting. Before I left to come home she made up my "homework" which consisted of adzuki beans and one section of a sprouting container she wasn't using. It has ever slightly raised circles in the bottom where little droplets of water from the beans help keep them from drying up.
I soaked the beans in water over night and then put them into the sprouter. For 2 days my homework was to rinse the beans twice a day....and they sprouted.
This is a salad I brought to work with the beans. They taste sort of like crunchy peas. Last weekend she gave me radish beans, mung beans and more adzuki beans. Georgia said the sprouts are delicious in soups too. Yummm!
Have you ever sprouted beans? If you like beans it really is fun and good for you too
