I thought my foray into this unknown territory should be something easy so I decided on chickpeas.
I have just started with a small amount and in the a few days should have some lovely little sprouts to throw into a rocket and roast pumpkin salad. The rocket is going absolutely crazy!
So I've rinsed and am now soaking these lovely little legumes. In about 12 to 18 hours they will be drained and rinsed and left in the jar to be rinsed at least twice a day. According to a few sources, the smell can get quite bad so rinsing is really important.
In a few days these should sprout little white tails and be ready to put in the fridge, where apparently the sprouting process stops.
I ended up adding a little more water to the jar and it is now on my kitchen bench covered with a muslin cloth.
I would really love to hear more about sprouting and find out what sort of things you sprout. All advise and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Hope you are all enjoying the weekend.
