Grow bean sprouts 1 of 3 ways

Published: Thursday, November 7, 2013 at 10:44 AM.

To use the third method, just place a couple of tablespoons of soaked beans in the bottom of a new clay flower pot, that’s been saturated with water.  Place a cloth screen over the bottom hole, and cover the entire pot with a layer of muslin or cheese cloth.  As previously described, the beans should be rinsed and drained three times a day, until the sprouts reach optimum length.

Regardless of the method you choose, the sprouts must be used or stored as soon as they reach proper size.  Place them in covered containers in the refrigerator.  They’ll keep three to five day.
