I was told you have to buy seeds specifically for sprouting. I was also told any ole seed will sprout. I am trying an experiment with Lentils.
I purchased a prepackaged bag of lentils. I rinsed them and placed them in my sprouting jar. I also rinsed and placed in a separate sprouting jar lentils purchased specifically for sprouting.
The only different in this experiment is the jar size. I did not have two large jars available. If I find the one jar needs to be bigger, I will empty my dried crackers and switch it over.
In about 3-4 days, we should have our answer. If there is no difference in sprouting, I plan to buy some chickpeas and try to make sprouted hummus for my lovely daughter.
Do any of you sprout? Do you eat store bought sprouts? If you eat store bought sprouts, is it only alfalfa or do you venture into the mung beans, lentils and the likes?
