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
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!
My favourite blend so far, sprouts quickly and is ready to eat in 3 days. Delicious.
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.
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.
I had tried Sandwich Booster with great success, so I decided to experiment. So simple to prepare, less than 1 minute start up time. Then each day, again, about 1 minute to rinse and drain.. Four days later 3 tablespoons of seeds had turned into 2 liters of sprouts. Incredible fresh flavor and texture. Everything in the stores looks so old compared. I bought a kilo, store them in the freezer, and , if my math is good, my cost was about 25 cents. Can't beat it.
Great addition to many dishes, but also great in sandwiches & wraps. I see a few comments that the adzuki are slower to sprout, which is a bonus for me because I don't like the adzuki to get too big for sandwiches. One of my favorite blends.
Absolutely thrilled with these grains. Love the fact sprouts are so good for you and anyone can grow them.
