Seed Sprouting Tips

Germination declines with time.  
When seeds no longer sprout they can still be prepared in other ways.

The longer sprouts grow the more flavor they have. 
Sprouts grow bitter as green chlorophyll develops.

Add to salads, decorate dinner plates, garnish buffet bars, and use in soups.

Alfalfa seeds make the most delicious sprouts. A few seeds go a long way.

Mung Bean Sprouts are typically found in Chow Mein Chinese Foods.

Growing is like a work of art, it doesn't always result in perfection.
