plastic collander kept by the kitchen sink is excellent for sprouting

  • By: Trishcatholic Verified Buyer from Victoria, BC CA on November 22, 2015
  • Pros: The Appearance
  • Cons: Not as sweet as mung bean sprouts from the grocery store, but it's fun to grow your own food and with dressing they tasted awesome.
  • Best uses: By Itself
  • Describe Yourself: Food Connoisseur

Very happy with my ancient grains sprouts. I rinsed them lots and let them sprout for 7 days. A little bit of ranch dressing and a dab of hot sauce shaken in a ziplock bag with my sprouts made a great snack. Everyone should eat sprouts everyday!

An unusual mix of seeds

  • By: Samia Verified Buyer from Winnipeg, MB CA on December 29, 2015
  • Pros: The Taste
  • Cons: Aduki beans don't sprout at the same rate as the other seeds and really should not be included in this otherwise tasty mix.
  • Best uses: By Itself
  • Describe Yourself: DIY`er

Sprouting was uneven: the aduki beans had only begun to swell when the other seeds had already completed sprouting and were ready for eating. I had to yank them out. So the second time I sprouted this mixture, I removed the aduki beans prior to soaking and then all was well. Also, except for the fenugreek, bean sprouts are best consumed slightly cooked (or even thoroughly cooked) in order to be fully digestible as well as to minimize the unappealing (to me) raw taste. Anyway, it's the fenugreek that saves this mix. I hope that you'll remove the aduki beans to save me the trouble. Tk. you.

This is not a knock on the company, but a decided thumbs down by my students on the taste of the Ancient Eastern Blends.

Very pleased

  • By: Sprouter Ross Verified Buyer from London , ON CA on February 13, 2016
  • Pros: The Taste
  • Cons: I didnt order enough :)
  • Best uses: In a Salad
  • Describe Yourself: Healthy Lifestyle

Being new to sprouting I was very pleased with the 4 items ordered. This Blend had nice large sprouts and were super easy to grow in mason jars. I found with all my items that after growing for 3-4 days on the counter they were best to then be placed in the fridge. The sprouts continue to grow while in the fridge and stay fresh and crisp. What a pleasure to have fresh, organic, low cost, non irradiated produce at a very reasonable cost.

Fenugreek gives this a nice exotic taste.

Aduki beans didn't sprout at the same rate for me as the other seeds; I see that other reviews here don't mention this problem so maybe the adukis were a bit old in the package I received. Please publish this review. Tks.

Love the Eastern Blend, one on my favourites. I eat the sprouts by themselves most of the time, as why wait
