We love sprouts

Back in September, I went to our Stake Women's Conference where three different classes were taught about varying subjects. My favorite class was called "The Worth of a Bean." We got tons of good recipes using beans. I even got to try pinto bean fudge. I had heard about it before, but had never tried it. It actually wasn't too bad, it only had a little pinto bean flavor. My favorite thing that I brought home were instructions to make your own bean sprouts. We were also given a little plastic piece of netting that you put over the top of your jar. We have all loved the bean sprouts so much. Our favorite sprouts are from using lentils.

Day One: Rinsed and left soaking for about 12 hours.

Day Two: Rinsed and left alone in a place free from direct sunlight. Beans need to be rinsed every 8-12 hours.

Day Three: Any growth?

Day Four: Just how we like them!

The girls will eat these for a snack and Roger and I love them on salads. We love sprouts!!!

I am going to try this. What is the lid? Cloth? Holes in it?
