**I'm also over at Frugal Local Kitchen today!**
Sprouts provide nutrient, enzymes and chlorophyll that just might not be available in store-bought produce that has been shipped in from up to 1,500 miles away. Which reminds me...Sprouting also cuts down on fossils fuel use while providing plenty of "ruffage" in your diet.

To get started with Hard Red Wheat you'll need a large jar with sprouting screen, seeds and water. Sprouting Kits available!
Add 2/3 cups of wheat to your jar and fill with water.
Soak seeds for up to 12 hours.
After 12 hours rinse thoroughly.
Set your sprouting jar out of direct sunlight for another 12 hours.
Hard Red Wheat Sprouts are ready in
It's a good idea to taste your sprouts with every rinse. This will allow you to decide when your sprouts are ready.
Once your sprouts are finished you can refrigerate them. Do not refrigerate wet sprouts. Grain sprouts should be eaten as soon as possible as they do not store well. They continue to grow even in the refrigerator.
Tomorrow I'm joining 3 awesome ladies for a very cool giveaway. Details tomorrow!
