Ughh... do I have to sprout.
Do I have to sprout? I have such an aversion to it. I don't know why - it seems like it would be a lot of work.
Should I buy a sprouter? Is it the easiest way to go? I was thiking about mason jars - but I share a kitchen with three others and there isn't a ton of room for mason jars to be laying around all over the counters and draining in the sink.
What do you guys think... Can I live without sprouts or should I take the plunge?
if I can do it, you can too!
I am one of those people who always hated to cook. And garden. Any plant I ever owned, I killed. Anyway, when I first read about sprouting, it seemed like alot of bother, and I wasn't interested. But so many recipes that I wanted to try called for sprouts. So I gave it a whirl.
I bought a cheap sprouting jar at my local Whole Foods. I think I paid $6 for it. It works like a charm, and takes up a minimal portion of the day to accomplish.
I think buckwheat is the easiest thing to sprout, and the quickest. I followed the directions in Allisa's book, and had no problems.
Give it a try, it's easy and you will really enjoy the end result. Yes, you can do this without sprouting a thing, but it opens up alot more recipes when you do. Good luck!
