    LOL

    Now I know what it is I DEFINATELY don't fancy it - read Ms McKeith's book a while back and she recommends it, but it doesn't appeal to me, kinda turns my stomach as I feel it's like watching the beans go off & go all sprouty, like a spud does. Just me being daft I guess, but I won't be doing it myself - happy to eat beansprouts though :rolleyes: :p

    Quickie update.!

    Got my "sprouter" today :D :D :D :D :D .

    So will be putting some seeds in to do their thing later on and see what happens. Knowing me and my 'disasters' will probably not come out right!! LOL

    My name is Laura and I am a sprouter :D.
    My favourite are alfalfa, they are lovely to go in sandwiches or salads. Mung beans make the kind of bean sprouts you get with your chinese meal.

    You don't need any fancy equipment at all. It's great fun for the children to do as well.

    You can buy alfalfa seeds at a health food shop and mung beans too.

    My method: All you need is a jar...a big coffee jar is ideal and a peice of muslin ( I use cut up tights!!). Put a tablespoon of alfalfa seeds in the jar, with the muslin/tights to go over the top of the jar and secure with an elastic band. fill the jar with water,swill it round and tip it out through the muslin/tights. Do this several times a day. I keep mine on the kitchen window sill so every time I go to the sink it reminds me to do it. In 4-6 days you have a jar full of lovely seed sprouts or beans if you use mung beans. How easy and cheap is that???
    they increase in their original weight from 10-15 times!! are rich in vitamins and minerals and contain a percentage of protien. The food value by sprouting is increased by something like 600%!!!

    :D :D :D :D Hi Laura and fellow sprouter. :)

    Thanks for the tips re sprouting. Was beginning to think I was the only one 'sprouting' !! LOL.

    My 'experiment' alfalfa are soaked and in the jar waiting for the joys of nature to take place.

    Cant wait to see how they turn out.
