View Full Version : Sprouted wheatberries
01-28-2006, 02:36 PM
I finally laid my hands on the wheatberries and have got some soaking until the morning.
Once I start rinsing and they start sprouting, how many days does it take until they are ready to use in recipes which call for 'sprouted wheatberries'?
Also, in the breads and wrappers that use them, are they used as they are i.e. not processed in a blender??
I'm sure Alissa's book explains this but I've lent it to a friend on condition she gives it back to me by tomorrow!!
Never before sprouted!!! :)

I am 2 days ahead of you on my first wheat sprout so I will tell you when mine are ready.

Alissa's book says 2 to 3 hours.

My chart says soak 10 to 12 hours and sprout 2 to 4 days.
Mine have nice little tails on them today. I think that I will consider them done and make cookies or bread.

Thanks both of you.
Sport - it's my first day sprouting and I can't see any 'tails' yet!! Let me know how yours turn out.
What are you going to use yours for and are you going to use them whole or grind them up?

Cheri Soria of The Living Light Insititue (www.rawfoodchef.com) has a video called Kitchen Gardening; Sprouting a New Leaf on Life that covers all aspects of sprouting. The visual quality is poor as it looks as though its filmed with a home handheld video recorder - but, the information she imparts is very good. They are only $15ea. and in pounds it would be less. If they do not ship abroad you can send it to me and I will happily forward it to you.
UKTracy you will need to see if she sells it in PAL format, as we here are NTSC. Although you may have a dual player as I did before I moved. :p
