A great way to get into bean sprouting, assuming you already have a Sprouter, or a means of sprouting.
Note: Beans yield about twice their weight, so this bunch o' Beans will produce about 6 pounds of sprouts. Our bean mixes have hooked thousands of people on sprouts. Munch them raw, right out of the Sprouter (or put them in a bowl. You'll enjoy them so much more =;-) - throw them on rice a minute or two before it is done cooking, throw in a stir fry, or pack a pita - you name it.
BEANginner will take you from Basic to Exotic in the world of Bean Sprouts. Bean Sprouts are colorful, diverse in flavor and texture, and are fun - and easy to grow.

An amazingly beautiful - pastel bean mix. Our original bean combo - Beanie's was originally called Jupiter's Awesome Mix - after our (first) beloved dog, who is responsible for our move "back to the land", and is our 2nd most popular bean blend of all time (just barely behind San Francisco Mix). Beanie's Awesome Mix lends itself to many Recipes.
This here is your basic Chick Pea. This blonde colored Garbanzo is extremely delicious, and very popular in sprout recipes. We will send you our Large Beige Garbanzo Bean or our Small Beige Garbanzo Bean - depending on our inventory and our preference. You will always get a great Chick Pea!
The most consumed sprout on Earth, Mung Beans are generally grown in China and are used extensively in Asian cuisine. Perhaps the most exciting sprout to grow as it offers unique challenges. Mung Beans are probably the best sprout of all to cook with - especially if you like Chinese food. We have some truly great recipes for Mung Bean Sprouts.
A combination of every Pea we have in stock. Pea Carnival varies slightly depending on supply, but usually contains 5 peas. It is amazingly beautiful - especially once sprouted. Kids really like this one. When the sprouts are let grow for 4 or 5 days they will form long roots and shoots with the Pea in-between. Apparently there is some fun in pulling them apart while holding the pea in your teeth which only children truly appreciate. Maybe its a Midwestern kid thing =:-)
If there was only one item you could get from us, Peasant Mix should be your choice. Well, it would be our's. Lentils offer everything: Lentils store forever, they are excellent nutritionally, they are easy to sprout, they taste great sprouted for 2 days or for 6 days (and all in between), they are great raw and cooked and the sprouts last for weeks and weeks in the fridge. Did we mention: Peasant Mix is BEAUTIFUL!
13 (or so) seeds mixed up to make our most popular sprout at the Dane County Farmer's Market - where we sold over 100 pounds every weekend throughout the Summer to our loyal and delighted customers, for many years. The inclusion of Peanuts is the main reason that more folks are addicted to this than to any other of our 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!
