We’re getting crunchier by the moment. I ground my own wheat today and made bread and English muffins. We started building a solar oven this morning, though we need another box to make the lid. Hubby expressed an interest in trying my baking soda/cornstarch/tea tree oil deodorant. I’ve even been thinking about trying my hand at sourdough so I’m not entirely dependent upon store-bought yeast. Well, OK. I really just love sourdough bread. The yeast thing was totally an excuse.
I’m ready now to revisit sprouting, but I desperately want your input before I spend too much money on sprouty gadgets that will make you all laugh and shake your collective head at me.
My mom has a Sprout Master which she absolutely loves. She says she struggled with mold and slime when she used jars and cheesecloth, but her Sprout Master has been pure plastic perfection. It’s not cheap, but perfection rarely is, even when it’s made of plastic.
Have you tried sprouting seeds? What do you use? What problems have you experienced, and did you find an easy solution?
Which sprouts do you eat raw, and which are better cooked?
Where do you buy your seeds?
I’m all ears. Tell me everything you know.
