Is anyone else a sprout aficionado?
I use jars on the counter, and my favorite is fenugreek (eventhough I busted a tooth on an uncooperative seed a few years back!).
I just love the fresh 'aliveness' (?) of them and can eat them by the handful on salads. I have even run them through the juicer with other greens.
Which method do you use? Which sprouts do you like the most? You know, that kind of thing...

I rule at sprouting. A few weeks ago I had a nice jar of sprouts going along with a huge ball of mold.

Hi, I am new to the whole (raw) sprouting scene. I have been eating sprouts, but I've never tried to actually sprout them myself. I have some chickpeas soaking, and tomorrow I will start to "rinse and let the water drain out & repeat for a couple days". Is there anything else I should know? I have a recipe for 'live' hummus that calles for sprouted chickpeas. If it's good, I'll share.
Also, you all were so helpful during the cleanse, whether you know it or not...thanks! Lake

Hey, recipes would be great! Sprouted hummus sounds great.
Thanks for mentioning sunflower sprouts, Res. I just got back from Puerto Rico, and while I was there, I visited the Ann Wigmore Institute in Aguada. They go through some sunflower sprouts there!
I got some beans and seeds today at Wild Oats, but I forgot to look for whole sunflower seeds. The bulk hulled ones were too broken up to sprout.
