Sprouts Organic & Non-Organic Seeds

Sprouted Grains are popping up everywhere and are in more and more food products

What is the difference between a whole and sprouted grain? A regular grain is essentially a seed that you can plant to produce a new seed that will producing a plant. When you let that grain grow but harvest it before the shoot turns into a full fledged plant you end up with a sprouted grain.

Here are some basics to success with Sprouts and Greens.. The  differences between microgreens and sproutsMicrogreens are grown in soil;sprouts germinate in water. The leaves and stems of microgreens can be eaten; the "stem" and seed of sprouts can be eaten. Sprouts are young shoots from the seed itself, the whole sprout can be eaten. Greens or Microgreens are young leafy vegetables or herbs that are harvested just above the soil line when the plant is about 1 to 2 inches tall. They are grown in a media as sprouts are germinated in water.

Soaking your seeds will Wake them up! As dry seeds are dormant, and soaking them ends the dormancy and begins the new journey of life.

 Add Water:

 Different seeds soak up different amounts of water. Mix 2-3 parts water to 1 part seed. Your seeds are going to absorb a lot of water while soaking. The most crucial issue is that we provide enough of water for the seeds. As a rule 2-3 times as much water (as seeds) is enough, but you cannot use too much. The seeds will only absorb what they can regardless of how much they have access too. But don't short them or they won't sprout well. You can't too much water, but you can soak for too long. SO watch your timing. There will be a few seeds that will not Soak at all and though most do, they Soak for varying duration's. The norm is 8-12 hours, but some soak for only 20 minutes, some occasionally soak in warm or hot water and for more or less time. Skim off any non-soaking seeds that are floating on the water.

Also, run your finger tips over any floating seeds to see if they will sink. Skim or pour off any seeds or non-seeds remaining afloat.

Rinsing

 Rinsing is one of THE TWO most critical things to do for sprouting

  Given proper moisture a seed will germinate.

  Rinsing is the process by which we add moisture to our sprouts. Draining is the process by which we regulate the amount of moisture our sprouts have available - until their next Rinse.

 Principals of Rinsing:

 Use cool water (60-70°).

Use a lot of water.
Use high water pressure whenever possible.
Rinse 2-3 times daily.

 By using high pressure water (we turn our faucet to high) by using high pressure you are cleaning your sprouts and are infusing them with oxygen (you are oxygenating) and keeping them loose - which helps a lot when it comes to draining.

 Although sprouts will grow with little water - as long as the humidity is correct, it is an opinion that they won't grow as well, store as well or taste as good without the correct humidity.  We also think that heavy watering/oxygenating will makes healthier sprouts. Sprouting to us is like micro-gardening. - Plants seem to grow right before your eyes. With Sprouts, a thorough rinse along with desired humidity and 70° temperature is a perfect climate.

 Don't forget the other most vital element of sprouting: Draining is number two of the most critical things to do for sprouting.

 Principals of Draining:

 Drain as much of the rinse water out of your sprouts as is possible. Be thorough and make sure that you have drained as well as possible.

 If I use less water to Rinse I'll have an easier time Draining. Not so.

Well: We have tried – way too many times. We know it may not make sense, but it is true - Rinsing thoroughly grows better sprouts.  However - when you Rinse thoroughly you MUST Drain just as thoroughly.
