I sprouted some mung beans this week and I thought they were done cooking (sprouting), but I'm not sure... First off- they have this light reddish tint to the "bean" portion. They also have "leaves" coming from the bean part of the sprouts....
And some of them (I had to split the load as they sooo overfilled my jar) grew branches to the main sprouted sprout. Does that even make sense?
Tonight, I soaked them to clean off the bean shell (I'm sure I'm using all the wrong words here) and they look alright and taste a bit bitter, but I'm not sure if they are alright to eat or if they need to be sprouted more.
FWIW- I soaked them on Saturday night and starting sprouting on Sunday morning so they have been sprouting for almost 4 days. Do I keep going? I started with 1 cup that was supposed to make 4 cups of sprouts but, I swear it's made at least 8-10 cups so far. I don't mind starting over (although I did have a taste for Alissas pai thai!! ;) )
Thanks soo much for your help!! You folks here are the bomb!!
