My husband loves homemade Chinese "take-out", and is forever wanting me to buy those awful grocery store bean sprouts. After lots of internet research and waffling I decided to go all in and buy 1kg of mung beans for sprouting. Am I ever glad I did. I sprout mine in an old salad spinner (I bought from a local thrift store) lined with cheesecloth and put in a drawer. The first batch were great, but because of my technique came out kind of curly and thin (still delicious, though). Now I grow them without agitating them and they come out super straight and thicker. And they grow really fast too. This is becoming a weekly crop, and I'll never ever ever go back to grocery store bean sprouts again.
Easy to grow (keep in dark for best flavour). Tasty. Crunchy. Nutritious. Wonderful addition to salads, stir fry, or a handful sprinkled with a little seasoning makes a great quick snack. Been growing these from Mumms for several years - always great quality.
I live on a boat and try not to eat meat. I don't have refrigeration either. Sprouting is a life saver. From experience, sprouting the larger seeds like mung or spring wheat is the best. The green lentils were out when I ordered but they are fabulous. My last order weighed lots! But the folks at Mumms paid the postage. Extraordinary. Takes my breath away. Awesome seeds and impeccable service from our friends out east of us. Kudos - Merci.
I have used the smaller sprouts like alfalfa and red clover for years, but when I discovered the crunch of these larger seeds, they immediately became my favourites! And the are ready in just a day or two...
These beans are excellent! They grow very well, are crisp, juicy and very tasty. They are the favorites of my family, including my children!
This is my third order of Mung Beans and all have almost 100 percentage of sprouts. They are generally ready in 4-5 days, and work great in my recipes.
Recently received an order of mung beans. Wish they were from Canada or USA, but they sprouted just fine! No problems! Your seeds have always been excellent and I am very happy with your service! Thanks guys!!!
Since I live on my boat in BC, the seeds that do best are those with 'large' sizes like mung beans. I have found the seeds from Mumms to sprout very well. Some of my seed is a year old (from my storage area) and yet it also sprouts like it was new that year. I add the sprouts to every level of my diet - salads, soups, stir frys. The beauty of sprouting is its provision of fresh healthy food. MUMMS is a great value - the choice is excellant.
I will buy them again!
Awesome in salads or sandwich
