Announcing Let's Sprout - A New Event

Sprouting is a practice of soaking and draining and then rinsing seeds at regular intervaks until the sprouts comes out or either by using jars for making fresh sprouts, i usually make sprouts twice a month with fenugreek seeds, chickpeas, lentils etc and i'll use them often in my cooking...Seeds are packed with nutrients, sprouted seeds are even better. As each grows, proteins, enzymes, vitamins and other nutrients increase whilst becoming more bioavailable. At the same time toxins and enzyme inhibitors are reduced, increasing digestibility...Sprouts grown at home and harvested at the dinner table are the freshest food you’ll ever eat. They wont have lost vitamins like shop bought vegetables or have travelled round the world. They will be organically grown, full of life and energy also sprouting is ridiculously cheap...Jars are traditionally used for sprouting, free and easy to find.. Use them for sprouts that don’t need light, avoid overfilling them to counter bad drainage and poor air circulation and for the same reason don’t use a lid, cover the top in a piece of muslin instead and invert jar to drain..This is how i make sprouts and its absolutely easy to makes fresh sprouts at home anytime..This event is to bring out how to make sprouts and sharing with everyone or either cooking with sprouts and adding them quite often in our daily menu..Do cook anything with sprouts and send them..

What a great theme, I am very much looking forward to see all the delicious and healthy that will come out.
I have one (probably silly) question: do we have to grow the spouts ourselves or can we buy them, when available? Thanks!
