Getting Started Sprouting
The practice of sprouting is becoming more and more popular, and for good reason. This ancient practice, some claim, can turn a hard to digest grain, seed, or bean into a food product that your body digests as easy as a vegetable.
Put simply, sprouts are the first growth of a seed, before they turn into what will someday become the plants we know and love in our gardens. When you keep the seeds moist and warm they begin to sprout and create tiny little plants.

Using Sprouted Seeds
Sprouts can be enjoyed in many dishes and recipes. While many sprouted vegetable seeds can be enjoyed raw, sprouted legumes and grains should be cooked before consuming. Learn more about using sprouts in recipes in our article on Choosing Sprouting Seeds.
When you are satisfied with the length of the sprouts, store them in a sealed container in the refrigerator for fresh eating. The storage point should coincide with a dry point in the sprouting process in order to prevent mold. Do not rinse seeds, cover tightly and store in the refrigerator.
