There are a lot of sources online for sprouters and seeds but if you’re looking for a source for information, as well as supplies, sproutpeople.org is a good resource.
They have detailed growing instructions for virtually any type of sprouting seed – well, as much detail as you need for this easy project. Seriously, the time you put into reading about sprouting a seed will be roughly equivalent to the time you send actually sprouting the seed.
They carry a lot of seed mixes too, and these are a really good way to up the flavor of sprouts. A lot of people think of alfalfa sprouts when you mention sprouts, but those sprouts are amongst the blandest you can grow, and are definitely not a personal favorite of mine.
Other sprouts have a lot more flavor. Radish sprouts, for example, taste like a full-grown radish. We also like mustard, broccoli, clover and mung, of course.
The seed mixes are also a great way to go. The Peasant Mix has a mixture of 8 lentils. San Francisco Mix has mung, peanut, 4 lentils, 4 peas, 2-3 garbanzos, and adzuki.
Keep your seeds in the freezer and they last a very long time. We’ve had some mixtures for years and they still sprout fine. The seed packs go a long way, too.
Tomorrow I’ll post some photos of our sprouter and the seeds we’ve been sprouting this week.
