How to Sprout Grain
Sprouting grain really is simple once you get the hang of it.
Step 1. Fill a glass bowl with wheat, spelt, or kamut and cover with filtered water. Let it sit for 8-10 hours.
Step 2. Dump it into a stainless steel colander, cover with a damp cloth, and set in a warm place.
Step 3. Rinse once a day, and in a day or two, you should see cute, little tails growing.
How simple is that? Once you get the hang of it, you can make large batches at a time. The sprouted grain can then be dehydrated for preservation, and then run through your wheat grinder to use in place of other flours in your cooking as needed.
