Had my first experience with sprouting seeds in jars

Got to say I'm quite enjoying it :D they grow so fast and are going to be super tasty! Not to mention a sack of seeds and a few more jars could provide some nice emergency food production :D 

@Cinnamon Thanks for the nudge towards a new experience :D

I'm sprouting onion seeds now, they take longer than the other seeds, but they're coming along. 

Keep rinsing! :)

Alfalfa sprouts are my favorite.  A big cold handful on my own sprouted wheat bread with a chunk of Laughing Cow Cheese spread to hold it together...so delicious...so good for you.  

My favorite way to eat mung bean sprouts is to steam about two cups just enough to relax them.  Then put on my favorite flour tortilla that is low carb but delicious.  Then I drizzle a bit of the oriental sauces (they have several kinds like Teriyaki and Orange) Over the sprouts and roll it all up and munch it all down.  No meat most times...don't need it. 

Read the labels...watch out for the High Fructose Corn Syrup or its new aliases.

These onion seeds are not doing anything. :angry: Maybe they're dead or something.  I'll try broccoli tomorrow.
