Have any of you grown any sprouts yet? If so, what did you use? I am wanting to grow some for a merit badge and am not sure what kind of seed to use. I want one that is easy to do for the first time trying.

Hi Lori yes I done Pintos Bean sprouts, broccoli, sunflower seeds, and many other kinds. Almost any choice is tasty. I also did a summer of micro greens it was interesting too! Just pick and do! Alfalfa is good and quick. You are getting so much done this summer! Enjoy and happy badge working!

Wow Vicki, you have done a lot of sprouts. I think I would like to try the Alfalfa as I haven't gotten them done yet. Do I buy the seeds to do this with?

Lori go to the feed store and ask or the natural pantry at the store/ market. Bean sprouts added to salads or fried with eggs are nutrition and easy to get started. All you need is a jar and a cloth. Maybe a rubber band to hold the cloth over the mouth of the jar. Rinse everyday and put in window sill. You will have bean sprouts in 5 or 6 days. Sometimes a little longer. Lentils also.

Lori -- Do you like the bean sprouts in Chinese food? If so buy some mung beans and grow your own. I use a quart canning jar with a screen lid but you can cover it with a piece of cloth. Soak them overnight, then drain. After that just rinse and drain twice a day. You will have bean sprouts in 3-5 days, depending on weather anytime of year; mine always grow faster in summer. Really good in a stir fry. It just takes a few beans to make a lot of sprouts. I use about a tablespoon for the two of us.
