Description

Preparation

Sort, discarding any stones, debris or malformed beans. Rinse in a colander. Soak overnight, or about 6-8 hours in warm water using at least 3 cups of water for every cup of beans. Drain. Boil enough water to cover top of beans by at least 1 inch (use the soak water or fresh).  Add beans to boiling water. Bring to a boil and then simmer until tender adding more water if necessary.  Season to taste.

To Sprout

Sort, soak and drain as directed above. Place in a roomy container such as a quart or gallon jar. Cover with a loose woven fabric, nylon stocking or mesh secured down by elastic or a rubber band.  Rinse and thoroughly drain 2-3 times daily until sprouts are of desired length.  Swish out seed caps in a basin of water if desired.  Sprouting legumes to the stage at which the root pops out makes them much quicker to cook.  Sprouting them to the two leaf stage is said to bring them to the peak of their nutritional value.
