San Francisco Sprout Mix

About

13 (or more) seeds mixed up to make our most popular bean sprout combo ever. During our decade at the Dane County Farmer's Market - we sold over 100 pounds every weekend throughout the summer to our loyal and delighted customers. The inclusion of Peanuts is the main reason that more folks are addicted to this than to any other of our bean sprouts. The most popular use of this mix (and many other bean sprouts) is as a snack - the majority of our customers say they eat SF Mix like popcorn or mixed nuts - straight, but we have some great recipe ideas too. Our personal favorite is Spicy San Francisco Snack Mix. It Rocks - and has a nice kick too!

The Story of San Francisco Mix From 1993-1998 we lived in a log cabin in rural southwestern Wisconsin. We had no running water. We did have solar power, an outhouse and a well that was about 500 feet down a steep hill from the cabin. We grew sprouts near our well. Back in 1994 it was - we grew our beans and other non-leafy sprouts on a wooden rack that held up to 50 nursery flats (10x20 inches each). The rack stood next to the edge of a hill, so the draining water from the sprouts would head downhill. In those days we didn't have many mixes - we grew most of our sprouts straight. Our most popular sprout was Peanuts. We also had Mung Beans, Lentils, Peas, Garbanzos and Adzukis. Well, one morning I went down the hill to rinse the sprouts - I noticed something was missing - - the rack was gone! I ran down only to find that the rack had collapsed and fallen down the little hill next to which it stood. I was totally freaked out! We were seriously low on funds in those days - we lived crop to crop - and all of a sudden we didn't have the sprouts our wholesale accounts (co-ops and natural food stores) had ordered, and what of the disappointment of our farmers market patrons? After I cried and screamed I got down the hill and scooped up the sprouts that weren't on the ground (they made quite a large pile, so most were on top of each other) and put them in the nursery flats. That was the only "bean" we had for the market that week. It turned out to be wildly popular - - - of course.

We made it, on purpose, every week after that. We named it San Francisco Mix because it was "nutty" and was always changing (I varied the mix depending on my mood and aesthetic). If only we could remember how often bad things lead to good things......

    Homemade peanut butter (roasted unsalted peanuts ground in a high-speed blender, nothing else!), topped with San Francisco sprouts -- absolutely delicious!

    These are SO easy to sprout!! They just seem to explode with vitality.

  • Good thing that rack fell down
    I haven't tried all of the mixes sprout people has, but this one is unreal. Awesome mix is pretty and perfect, but the peanuts in SF mix kinda blow my mind and my tastebuds too. I have a hard time growing SF more then a couple days 'cause I eat them when I rinse them. Great Mix.

  • Oh So Yummy
    I just sprouted this mix for the first time. Of course, once those tiny little sprouts just started to show I had to give it a safety taste test. Yum. Next rinse, figured I better taste test again, just once (ahem). Yum yum. Well, by end of day 3-4 I JUST had to taste test before I stored my lovely produce. Dang it! Caught red handed by my hubby who was wondering why it always seemed there was a little less each time he looked. The problem is that the sprouts are so good alone it's hard to let them grow long enough. Wonderful combo, just enough crunch and fabulous flavor.
