HOW TO SPROUT
Fenugreek has a pleasant light taste and can be used fresh in
salads and sandwiches. If using the Bioset Kitchen Salad Garden
or a commercial sprouter, follow the instructions included with your
unit. You may also sprout the seeds in a clean wide-mouth glass
canning jar.
• Place 1 Tbs. of seed in the jar.
• Cover the mouth of the jar with cheesecloth or other porous
material. Secure the cloth with a rubber band.
• Fill the jar 1/2 full with lukewarm water and let soak overnight.
• In the morning drain off water. The cloth will keep the seeds in
the jar. Rinse seeds with lukewarm water again and let drain.
• Put the container, on its side, in a dark location that stays
about 70° F.
• Twice each day rinse with lukewarm water and drain.
Continue rinse cycle until harvest.
• When the sprouts are 11/2 to 2 inches long or have their first
tiny green leaves, expose them to light for a few hours to
green them up.
• Hulls may be rinsed out or skimmed off the top of the water
with a spoon. They are not harmful to eat but removing them
minimizes spoilage in storage.
• Sprouts can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week
