Growing bean sprouts wasn't on my list of to dos. I was researching for global health insurance, since my cousin travels internationally a lot, when growing bean sprouts kept popping up during the search.
Growing bean sprouts would fall under my garden category. I enjoy the propagation process and nursing plants back to its health. I find the bean sprout growing process interesting and that it definitely falls inline with my propagation and gardening interest. I couldn't believe how easy it is to grow and have your own bean sprouts, as well how healthy bean sprouts is for your diet.
Here are the steps to grow your own bean sprouts from a kitchen window.
1 container with a strainer lid, or create your own lid with air holes by using the saran wrap as I did here. 1/2 cup of beans, use sparingly as they expand quite rapidly. I used a jar that is 96 ounces for a 1/2 cup of beans. Until you know how big your container can hold, start small. I also chose to use mung beans but you can use lentil too. Put the beans in a jar - glass or plastic is okay, fill the beans with water and soak it over night.
Next day, rinse out the bean sprouts and do this every day. Set the beans jar by your kitchen window and watch them sprout.
It is a lot of fun watching the bean sprouts. You and or your kids will love the changes everyday. In the mean time, I am running off to help my cousin find an eczema treatment that will help with her dry chapped hands. Let me know how your bean sprout experiment turns out.
Thanks for stopping by today.
