Growing Wild Rice Sprouts

Growing Wild Rice Sprouts

Rice is best stored in a cool location - at Sproutpeople, we keep it in a freezer. If you plan on storing it for more than 3 months you should use a cool location, because, it is, on ocassion 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 warned =:-}

Happy Sprouting!

Wild Rice awaiting the great Soaking.

12 hours later... another Rinse/Drain cycle. You can be done - or go....

12 hours more.... Harvest Time! As we mention in the instructions - albeit briefly - Wild Rice is a seed we've never seen a sprout on. That's OK. You can harvest/consume your crop anytime after Soaking. Anytime! A note: There are always broken grains. Wild Rice is a long grain rice, so expect to see some breakage. But, it matters not - we aren't looking for a root, so eat 'em up. Yum!
