The Beansprout Book

Found a great book on sprouting at a second hand store. Quite likely it's out of print but I'll give you the details . . . .who knows, maybe you'll find it on Ebay!

The Beansprout Book by Gay Courter
(Everything about sprouting beans, seeds and grains)
Copyright 1973 Published by Simon and Schuster

Tells how to sprout, what equipment, what grains/seeds to use, cooking directions, recipes, storage and preservation, etc.

If anyone is interested, I could post some of the recipes.

Long-dead thread, and I suspect the OP is long gone, but I love the topic. I've been sprouting on board for many years now. It's so easy, and such a great thing for those of us who are off the dock for months at a time.

I use a set of stackable draining trays to keep a constant supply available. Mine looks like this:

Re: The Beansprout Book

Thanks for the reply regarding the stackers you use. I plan to be off grid for a few months so this will be so perfect for maintaining good nutrition...thanks again for posting!

We have the same tray system. It takes a couple tries to get the watering right. But otherwise works well.
Personally I prefer the mixed seeds that have radish in as well. Adds an interesting flavor mix

Yes, I love radish sprouts. I have a bunch of different types of seeds, including a couple of mixed packs. Mung, alfalfa, broccoli, clover, lentil ... maybe a few others (it's all on the boat ... and I am not ).

The trays are great because you can stagger-start one every few days and get a constant supply going after about a week. It's really wonderful, especially after we've eaten through all our fresh stuff.

Thanks Ann. I haven't tried that. Something to look into when (if?) I ever see my boat again.
