For those of you interested in the ancient sprouted flourless bibical bread I plan to make (Whoo! what a long description!), I just bought the wheat berries yesterday, so now will have to put them in water for a few days to sprout.
To sprout I have to put the wheat berries in a jar with an aerated top. I thought I would put a piece of nylong hose over it and seal with a rubberband. Then you alternately soak and rinse the wheat berries until you have sprouts at least as long as the berries themselves. I think it takes about three days. I will try to get started on it tomorrow.
I don't have a food processor so am contemplating the best way to crush the sprouts. I have a wooden pestle, but it is way too small...I need a big stone pestle/mortar. Maybe I will put them in wax paper and roll them with my rolling pin.
I may be silly, but I am a hold-out on the food processor. I just would rather do things by hand...get the exercise and be closer to the food. Weird, I know. :)
I will definitely post on here as soon as I have sprouts!
