View Full Version : Sprouting

I am thinking of getting the freshlife automatic sprouter - water based. I have another sprouter that is soil based but it is combersome and I am looking for the easy way out to be honest! With the freshlife am I getting nutrients? I don't think you put it in the sunlight - . I can buy sprouts at Whole Foods so I am wondering nutrionally which would be best.

Sprouting mechanics are very simple and I subscribe to using simple methods rather than spending $$$ on automatic sprouters and gizmos.
I prefer using a glass mason jar, cheesecloth, rubber band and a plate. I have even sprouted with nothing more than a collander, plate and damp cotton dishcloth. Easy.
Start with easy sprouts like alfalfa, mung and lentils. Refer to a chart for sprouting times and rinsing and you should be off and running. If they don't sprout at first or you get mould, just try again.
Just start experimenting. Sprouts are inexpensive and yield living food wonder.

I've done the mason jar routine and when I had a little extra money, treated myself to the FreshLife sprouters, which I absolutely, hands-down LOVE. So easy to use. I highly recommend them.
