sprouting seeds to eat
« on: March 05, 2013, 12:04:15 PM »
I'm sprouting seeds to eat, just done some sunflower seeds, but a lot of sprouts still have the husk on and it's a bit chewy,is there a way of getting them off without having to pick over every shoot?

Wait a bit longer before eating them? I'm sure if they expand a bit more then more of the husks will fall off.

Mmmmm... sprouts... especially alfalfa  ;D

I thought that but they have been there a few days. I had some in my sandwich, yummy. I have red clover and broccoli sprouting now. Broccoli is meant to have real health benefits and i love the mustardy taste

You know you can get ones with the husk already off, not toasted or anything.. do you think they would sprout?
