Called simply Frijoles Verde. You buy them at the Chinese mini-super. In Colon, we always shop at Oriental Shopping on the corner of Avenida Central and Calle 13.

The Rey doesn't have them.

ciao!
Nick.

Thanks, Nick. Great article, great sprouts, and you are on a Sundeer 64! nice.

do you produce anything else on board, like tomatoes or yogurt or beer?

We do yoghurt sometimes when we get a good starter. The best we ever had was from a lady named Marianne, in Bequia in the East Caribbean.

We use the EasyYo because it only requires hot water to make yoghurt, no power etc.

I am planning to develop some hydra-culture systems for on a boat but it is complicated to keep the water cool enough. But I will try

Re: Ultimate Bean Sprouting Guide

watering systems - would it be more economical to
1) create aquaculture and not need to move the plants
2) plants on deck and water with rain or morning dew, but need to move plants to protection for sailing or salty waves

Aquaculture is using live fish... I don't think we can keep them alive on tanks on a boat so opted for hydroculture (hydroponics).

The problem is keeping the water/nutrient mix cool and I plan to do that with a combination of shading and evaporation-cooling. It wastes a bit of water as it evaporates but cooling comes with cost no matter what. Outside the tropics this is much easier.

Re: Ultimate Bean Sprouting Guide

Thank you for the information. I'll have to head out to the store soon to get some supplies to try this. That, & clean up my Wok, & give it a fresh coating of oil

oops, meant to type hydroponics. aquaculture-farming fish inside of net-pens you drag along is interesting by I can't imagine how to move around at more than 2 knots, or to avoid regulations about introducing non-native fish to an area.

for hydroponic growing: i hadn't considered the heat and evaporation. so shading and moisture barrier overhead (to retain water) would be needed.

It would be wonderful to grow fresh lettuce, cabbage, asparagus, etc where ever you anchor.

Indeed, plus it fits into my liking of that part of the prepper prepping

I intend to use a small solar panel above the plants for shading while it also supplies the power for the small pump. The system goes into rest at night which seems to work pretty good for others. I'm considering a top-feed with mini sprinkler nozzles like they sell for potted plants. This should create the cooling from evaporation effect during delivery to the plant. How to keep the storage tank cool is another obstacle

Re: Ultimate Bean Sprouting Guide

Growing veggies makes heaps of good sense to me. And I remember hearing friends talk about hippies sh#tting in plastic bags and growing thriving tomato plants out of them... Food for thought, perhaps?

Food for thought? Yes.
Food for me? No way.

Re: Ultimate Bean Sprouting Guide

We just made Nasi Goreng again, using a new harvest of bean sprouts and 4 big stalks of bok choy

Re: Ultimate Bean Sprouting Guide

Your idea of Nasi Goreng and mine differ considerably.

I've eaten it all over SE Asia and make it myself quite often. I don't think I've ever seen bean sprouts used and certainly not big stalks of bok choy.

About the only green I've seen is spring oinon.

Nasi Goreng: nasi means rice and goreng means fried so literally it is just rice, but the dish originates from Indonesia where it is custom to use any leftovers from yesterday in it. Not only put they cooked vegetables in it, but also add some Atjar, pickled veggies, to the plate. When there was little meat, shrimp left to go in, a fried egg goes on top. This has become known as nasi goreng speciaal.

So, you can put in whatever you like and it'll be authentic Here's a picture from Wikipedia:
