Why can't I just blend up chickpeas raw without having to sprout them? I noticed on all the posts, they say to sprout them first? :confused:

They are very hard and bitter. It doesn't take long to sprout - soak overnight, and rinse 5-6 times daily and in about 3 days you'll have little "heads and tails" and they'll be ready to use.

I did try them, and they turned out mouldy..I don't know what I did wrong, but they smelled sour..so overnight meaning about 8-9 hours? :)

According to my chart it should be soaking for 10 to 12 hours and sprouting for 3 days.
When you rinse them totally immerse them and give them a good washing. Slosh them around a bit.
