SPROUTING

SPROUTING
A while ago I published a post about sprouting lentils.
The process was surprisingly easy…
So much so that I decided to buy a real sprouter to use on the boat
as glass (i.e. the make-shift Mason jar sprouter) isn’t the best material
to have around when we rock and roll on the water.
An internet search brought me to the Easy Sprout
…a 1 quart-sized plastic sprouter…
…. and my purchase of seeds…
It didn’t take me long to try our my new galley acquisition…
Just 1/4 cup of seeds, soaked for 8 hours,
then once rinsed I set them aside for an over-night rest.
…the next day…
…rinsed and drained…
…the second day…
…rinsed and drained…

 

…the third day…
The yield from just 1/4 cup produced 1 quart of delicious crunchy sprouts…

 

…topping for a fresh salad…
…or a healthy addition to the Captain’s lunch…
My second attempt was the leftover lentils from my Mason jar experiment…
…again, soaked for 8 hours,
rinsed and set aside to do what all good sprouts do…
… after 3 days of rinsing each day my Puy lentils were ready to use…
…they made a great addition to our first spring boat picnic…
Spicy Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps,
Garlic Focaccia with a little cheese…
and a glass of wine – of course.
