TP works just as well, and I assume you can buy that in the UK
Alfalfa day 1,2 7 and 9,assorted beans day 4,hope its acceptable to post...
OK,last post,I dont want to hog the thread...
Agree,coffee filters,paper towel and paper napkins also work well.Ive used those plastic clamshell trays with 'blotter',works well for the alfalfa and broccoli and radish types very well.Then I put clamshell in a tray to keep bottom moist with frequent water changes (2-3 times a day) after day 4,until then I only spray misted with water.And its cheap,only need to buy seeds.
On day 7... I removed the blotter,rinsed under running water to remove unsprouted seeds and back into clamshell without blotter,Day ten was amazing.Included is a lovely mung bean/alfalfa/avocado salad,also you can make an antipasto style with meat,but not included to not ruin it for the veggie folks here,but it makes a great salad!
As we have the sprouting experts assembled can I ask what type of beans make the beansprouts for Chinese stir fries?
I think it’s mung bean but don’t actually know why I think that!
You're right @Daikat they are mung beans
Lovely in stir fries
Thanks for confirming RRB.
Very impressive, learning a lot today
Now I'm making a salad lol............that avocado always gets me!
All of those with young kids or grand children firstly - lucky you, secondly - this is a great thing to do with them! Seed to plate. Fun, educational and very nutritious...
I had a salad!!! With lots of avocado on it!!!
Me too! I've always loved sprouted seeds and beans and I can (very) dimly recall doing them when I was a girl (soooooo long ago haha). I'm glad of this thread for the advice and tuition. It's been just what I needed
When I finish my 'sachet shakes ' diet I will be testing my bg to see if I can have sprouted mung and will try some others. They sound delicious.
Would rolls of cotton wool be an alternative? I think I've seen it suggested for fun sprouting kits for children?
@Robbity - Both cottonwool and the loo roll (thanks @Antje77 ) sound like great suggestions. Cheaper than blotting paper too, these days.
Kitchen towel is probably a good alternative to blotting paper, TP as @Antje77 suggested is designed to dissolve in water so not so good. I am deciding which sprouting jar to get to try that method, the avocado salad picture convinced me.
Yeah - I love sprouted seeds on my lunch (or dinner, if it happens to be salad or stir fry, or have veg in it)
If we didn't, we'd all be in the sh** ( in other words, down the pan)
