Just about every grain and pseudograin under the sun, combined into a delightfully sweet and nutritious treat.
Kamut® is an ancient grain which is now a patented product. The story we have heard is this: A farmer from Montana, while serving in Northern Africa during WWII, found some grain seeds. He brought the seeds back to the family farm and after years of raising the crop on their land, the family applied for - and was given a patent. Whatever is the case, this is a truly awesome grain! It is bigger than wheat and slightly less sweet as well as more tender.
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!
Quinoa (Keen-wah) is an ancient pseudograin which originated in the Andes region of South America, where our seed comes from even today. Quinoa has been cultivated for 6000 years. It was a staple of the Inca diet, and they considered it . Quinoa is the only sprout which contains every single amino-acid. It is another one of the quickest sprouts, preferring to soak for only 30 minutes and showing 2 roots per seed - usually within 24 hours. It is very beautiful as well as delicious. Like its relative, Amaranth, it has a mild beet-like (they too are related) flavor, though it's also nutty.
Very very easy to sprout, very very sweet and very very nutritious! Variety: hard (usually red) winter wheat.
