Since there's nothing green growing outside in Vermont right now, it's a great time to have your own bean sprouts growing inside. I found mine for $2.00 at a thrift store but I'm sure you can find one new somewhere if you don't want to wait. Check your local health food store or I know Amazon carries them.
My sprouter is a three tier so I can grow three different types of sprouts if I want to. The only one I have experience with are mung beans which are your standard bean sprouts but I have heard that radish sprouts are yummy too. I get the seeds at my local health food store.
1. Sort through the bean seeds and remove any that are damaged.
2. Place the bean seeds in a try and rinse them well.
3. Soak the bean seeds in warm water for eight to ten hours. Then drain well.
4. Rinse the seeds under warm water and let stand to drain for twelve hours.
5. Rinse & drain two times a day for two days.
Then you should have sprouts. You can add them to salads or put them in bread or have them on sandwiches.
