 ====== 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.
