Sprouting: Are they done yet?
How do you know when your sprouts are done.. sprouting?
I've got a few lentils I've been sprouting and I'm not sure if their "done" yet. Now my Mother was a sprouter but this is my first time. (To be honest I hated my Moms sprouts, they were REALLY spicy. So I thought I'd try something blander.) The lentils have sprouted and the tips of their little stems/roots (? lol) are green. It looks like some are trying to make leaves while others are unsprouted.
What do I do now? Are they done and do I through them all onto a salad? Or do I let them finish ALL sprouting and until I see little leaves? Do I leave the unsprouted lentils in when I serve them or pick them out?
Any help would be appreciated. ;)
Thanks very much in advance!
(On a side note since my interest in raw foods began the hubby and I have been doing our best, in our budget, to lean towards a rawer or at least more veggie filled diet.. along the way we've been inspiring friends to go take a look into the raw food diet as well. ALOT more people have shown interest than I thought they would. Neat huh?) :D
I nearly forgot to mention..
I never got my flax to sprout. I had to eventually give up on them and throw them out. :(
