Mung Bean Sprouts
Do Your Own Sprouts !
Here in the jar are sprouted mung beans.
They are very easy to do, all you need is a jar and some mesh to cover the top with an elastic band to secure it . (You can use an old piece of stocking, muslin, cheese cloth or netting)so the water can run out but the sprouts don't fall out. First I put 1/2 a cup of dried mung beans in a glass jar, then I soak the beans for about 4 hours in warm water.
Then I rinse them ,leave over night ,next morning rinse again leave over night .next day they will be ready to eat. They will have little white shoots on them . Put them in the fridge and use within a few days . In the hot weather they will need rinsing a few times a day .
Note: They are nice tossed through salads, they are also nice with mayonnaise on ryvita biscuits . Can stir them through a soup they are nice to snack on with sultanas, just a few suggestions ! Eat and enjoy ! they are very nutritious !
