It shows how seeds can sprout in jars and can be eaten and are very nutritional.

I think the correct term is 'sprouting' .. and my partner is a fan of it, he sprouts alsorts of seeds and bungs them in salads or sandwiches.

He's even gone as far as getting one of those stackable strainer type thing ma bobs (don't know the real name, lol! ... and he has 2-3 levels of sprouts going at any one time, it's funny thing to come across, at first glance they all look like cress, haha!

Apparently when you sprout a seed, you activate all the goodness within it and the vitamins etc multiple by loads, so they become very nutritional!

Thanks for replying Silversatori and welcome to the forum

That's great that your partner is into this, could you possibily do me a favour at some point, and ask him what sort of seeds to buy and where to get them and also how much do they cost, cos I want to have a go at this myself Cheers!

Default sprouting seeds

Sounds a good idea sprouting different seeds in a jar.

We have sprouted mustard, cress and also mung bean seeds on damp blotting paper but never in a jar - must try this !!!!

i used a plastic tray for sprouting until a friend bought me this terracotta one , it is hexagonal shape as well so both the shape and material combined give much better results . In fact probably increased a third at least worth buying if you plan to use it regularly .

No just soak seeds for a few hours and then spread in the dish , water morning and night they are designed to let a small amount of light in during the day and then close down of a night .It really is amazing t ose how much they produce must be the terracotta as well as the geometrical shape .far better than the plastic ones or the jars i found .Jars are handy for travelling with in case you need to use them that way as in camping etc less to carry with u , but again the glass jars have to be better than plastic seed trays Yuo can also grow your own wheatgrass but need a different type of proces to juice it , you can get non electic juicers for this and fresh whaetgrass is supposed to be very good for you very close to human blood in some way i cant recal offhand , its been a long day when i next have a batch done i will post a pic to show you

Excellent thanks 2013. Making me hungry looking at those pics
If you get a chance I wouldnt mind a pic of those when you take some of it out of the container, is it in a tight clump ? I mean is there alot of it in the container cos it's sorta hard to tell from the pics. Anyway either way they look very impressive.
Ok I'm gonna go have some of my home made pea and ham soup

No because that is not a problem at all. Any necessary rays that the sun provides go through the glass.

Heres a couple of pics on a dinner plate not quiet alan's big plate AHA , the seeds are still a bit clumped together , but the palte is 10" diameter i measured it in the spirit of mr partridge


sometimes i end up binning some as i cant eat that much in a few days, so work out the best amount to do as they take 3 - 5 days to sprout

Thanks for the pics 2013, very "Partidge"
Maybe you could throw some of the sprouts into a home-made soup to give it some body or to give it more texture/character ?

So our Sun is giving off rays we don't need, or benefit from? Amygdalin is attacked when labeled as Vitamin b-17 because it's not "necessary" and therefore technically it's not a vitamin. Is a lack of amygdalin in our diet "not a problem at all"?

I'm not saying these sprouts grown in such a way aren't good for us, but couldn't they be better? I may be being a little critical here, but I find the more tampering with food, the more problems we face as a result.

I don't wish to discourage anyone from growing and eating in such a manner. I'm just surprised that the same type of crowd that is paranoid about cloned meat, (and every single food item at McDonald's) is readily accepting of this.

I dont believe in all this vitamin crap. Anything that the "scientists" tell us is bullshit in my opinion. Ignore the scientist I say. "Amygdalin" ? I dont need to know about Amygdalin and "vitamins". I eat and grow what I feel is right for me, I dont need so-called scientists to tell me anything thanks. Those same scientists are putting vitamins (chemicals) in our foods and creating GM foods and tell us they are ok to eat. If you wish to follow them and listen to what they say then that is up to you, but I dont. End of story.

MadThumbs, stuff is grown in greenhouses all the time (surrounded by glass). Are you unaware of this ?
