Hello Sprouters! OK, Spring has arrived, at least on the calendar. Soon it will be here for certain. Spring is the time when the outdoor gardeners clean up the winter debris. It always amazes me how much stuff gathers on our village property during the winter. In the fall, well before the first snow flakes meet the Read more…

Hello Sprouters! Welcome to February! This month is Heart Health Month. Eating sprouts fits right in with Healthy Hearts. Sprouts are a no cholesterol food and full of great fiber; leafy green sprouts have lots of chlorophyll and vitamins; good fats and good carbohydrates abound in sprouts. So eat some sprouts and have a healthy heart.
We have pocorn back in stock. Our popcorn comes to you directly from the farmer. The popcorn makes beautiful shoots, very sweet and crunchy as long as you grow them in the dark. As soon as light hits them then they turn green and get bitter and chewy. Chefs everywhere are growing their own for a special something added to salads and other dishes.
We have two new sprouters, both from an Italian company. The GEO sprouter is a plastic sprouter that comes in a sprouting shade of green. It is a three tiered stackable sprouter but it has space in between each of the stacks for air circulation. Very easy to use and to keep clean. I have stayed away from other stackable sprouters because of the air circulation problem but this sprouter’s unique design had me intrigued and when I tried it out, I actually liked it.
The other sprouter is from the same company and it is a clay sprouter, the GEO Terradesiena. This terra cotta sprouter is lead and cadmium free. It is a three tiered stackable sprouter that has a unique design to allow air circulation for the growing sprouts. I have one on my counter now and love the way it looks as well as the way it sprouts. As all clay sprouters the diameter of each tray is not very big but it gets the job done very nicely.

Sprouting during the winter months is a wonderful experience. Here in the northeast those gray, cold days outside are met with growing green sprouts on the inside. Every morning and every evening as I tend to their rinsing, I watch with wonder as the little seed changes itself into a lovely sprout that I can eat, and share with family and friends. All it takes is to get some seeds and start soaking them.

HOLIDAY EATING TIPS
1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Holiday spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they’re serving rum balls. Read more…
