This is a very SHORT read with very little useful information, most of which is incomplete! I ordered this knowing it would be a quick read that would hopefully get me growing in no time, but I found a lack of information on, how to. What info there was that might have been useful was incomplete! I would not waste your money even if it's only 5 bucks! The Author refers to this as a book, well we should all be so lucky to write something 16 pages long, and call it a book, and make money doing so!
There are only 16 pages of paper in it not counting the last one which is a blank and is without page numbers or separate chapters. Instead of covering sprouting in depth it only gives a brief overview. For example in the microgreen section it only tells how to plant and what to plant. It does not cover when to harvest and how to harvest. Far more in depth information on sprouting can be found on the internet.
I'd been looking for some guidance on sprouting and this quick-read will make a very handy reference book! Not a detailed tome, but quick, easy answers to help you hit the ground running (so to speak) with sprouting! :)
I'm excited about trying it. The author gives examples of many different types of seeds, beans, nuts and grains as well as methods and suggested equipment for each type. He also covers how long to let the various types grow before harvesting and how long they can be stored. He provides the sort of detail that one could only gain by actually growing each type and learning their idiosyncrasies.
Great little resource if you are interested in adding raw foods to your diet. There's lots of great stuff inside, but I was very excited to find out that all those bags of dried lentils in the pantry (that I never know what to do with except make lentil soup) can be sprouted and eaten raw on top of salads or on sandwiches and such. Same with black beans, peas and other beans. I was also surprised to see how little time it actually takes....in most cases just a few days from dried bean/legume, etc. to sprouted edible shoots.Well researched and reads as if the author knows what he/she is talking about.
Wanted to start eating more sprouts and tried with just mason jars. Now after reading this e book I will be trying different types and starting micro greens. If you are interested in sprouts read this book.
I highly recommend this booklet. It has pictures to augment the instructions given. I found the links included helpful. This is my first time sprouting anything and I had 100% success. If I can do it anyone can! Thank you for the book!!
Great book, but some things are missing. Such as being careful where you buy your seeds (or even the fruits, as they may be hybrids. Not everything can be sprouted for addition nutrition or for growing your own.Case in point:From Wikipedia: "California almonds labeled "raw" must be steam-pasteurized or chemically treated with propylene oxide. This doesn't apply to imported almonds or almonds sold from the grower directly to the consumer in small quantities."This is NOT noted on the label of the can of "raw almonds" that I bought. This means you can't sprout almonds for added nutrition or anything at all. So, beware and be wary if you find you are having difficulty getting something to sprout. There may be an ominous reason. :(
