We recently purchased multiple items from these guys and i would not hesitate if you are thinking about sprouting! All was fresh, sprouted amazing and we are very happy with our purchases--garbanzos, ancient east blend as well as a few Lentil mixes plus others
My favourite blend so far, sprouts quickly and is ready to eat in 3 days. Delicious.
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!
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.
Found it bitter and not as expected. No sweet or nice crunch to it.
The Aduki beans don't sprout at the same rate as the other grains/lentils.
This is not a knock on the company, but a decided thumbs down by my students on the taste of the Ancient Eastern Blends.
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.
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
