 ====== Sprouting ====== ====== Sprouting ======
  
 +Sprouting is 
  
-FIXME+> the practice of germinating seeds (e.g., mung beans, sunflower seeds, etc.) to be eaten raw or cooked((https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sprouting#Nutrition)) 
 + 
 +It can be a way to get fresh vegetarian food or greens in a van.  
 +===== process ===== 
 + 
 +The usual process is: 
 + 
 +  - a long soak, perhaps overnight, followed by  
 +  - draining upside down 
 +  - then rinsing/draining upside down a few times a day until desired growth is reached.  A common stopping point is when the grown "tail" gets as long as the seed.  This typically takes 2-5 days.  
 + 
 +Keeping the jar upside down keeps the sprouts moist but not sitting in moisture. 
 + 
 +[[https://amzn.to/3ecJmHG|Dedicated sprouting gear]] does exist, though mason jars with [[https://amzn.to/3gHoda8|breathable lids]] (cheesecloth, screen, etc) works fine.  Widemouth jars are easier to clean and remove sprouts from.
