Growing Quinoa Sprouts

Growing Quinoa Sprouts

Quinoa is best stored in a cool location - we keep ours in a freezer. If you plan on storing these for more than 6 months you should freeze them. Also, Quinoa is occasionally pleasing to a particular pest - the Indian Meal Moth, which can appear out of nowhere when conditions are right (hot). These are organic seeds after all, so there is no other way to keep your seeds absolutely safe, except to freeze them. Consider yourself further down the trail of sprout education. =:-}

Dry Quinoa await their Soak.

12 hours later... another Rinse/Drain cycle. You can be done - if you haven't eaten them already, or keep on sprouting.
