Grains are a quick sprout, taking as little as 20 minutes, and no more than 2 or 3 days to produce a finished sprout.
If you let large grains like Wheat,
Barley, Rye,etc.) grow for several days they produce Grass.
Grains are all sweet, though some are sweeter than others. Kids tend to love them because of their sweetness, so they are often a child's first positive sprout experience.
They can be used in breads, as a cereal, in stir-frys or as a snack - or anything else you can imagine.
Oats + Groats and Amber Waves make a fantastic super nutritious breakfast - top with some fruit, nuts, milk, maple syrup....anything.
You won't believe how great Grain Sprouts can be!
Breakfast Sprouts?! It's about time!!!
Top these sprouts with milk (cow, soy, rice, goat...) and a little maple syrup (our favorite) and you have the perfect breakfast. It has been a very long time since we ate breakfast with any regularity, but this has changed our lives. Oats + Groats is delicious (the maple syrup doesn't hurt either =;-)
and has a great soft crunchy texture. One-half cup of this "cereal" provides a great nutritious, and delicious start to your day - it is a "no brainer", try it and see.
Oats + Groats is a Very Quick sprout. You can Soak it for 1/2 an hour, Rinse it, Drain it, and eat it up (once soaked a seed is alive), or you can sprout it longer - whatever you like.
Though a very simple mix, we consider it one our best. Try some Sprouts for Breakfast!
Wild Rice is all together different. It is too long a grain to survive intact through harvest and all the shipping it encounters between the farmer and you, but though it has a higher percentage of broken seeds than other seed we sell,
it soaks up water readily and quickly - and to us - is the most edible of raw sprouted rices.
Though our other rices produce a bulging germ or a tiny sprout - Wild Rice doesn't seem to do either. But, it's so good, we really don't care.
It is edible raw (Lori loves it!), and cooks up more quickly if you're going that way. Either way it has greater nutritional benefit.
