Dried Sprouts

Hidee Ho, Neighbors! 

As I mentioned in my last post, I went ahead and dried some of the sprouts to be ground into a flour at a later date.  To dry them, I just put them in the cold oven and selected the lowest setting (170).  As soon as the oven was done preheating, I turned it off and just let the sprouts sit in the oven as it cooled.  I repeated this over and over for about 5 hours, then the last time, I just left them in the cold oven for a couple of days.

They are now crunchy and not quite as sweet, which I like.  I am not sure how I will grind them into flour....perhaps use my husband's coffee grinder?  Then I will try to add them to a bread recipe or perhaps just make some crackers.  I will let you know!

Has anyone tried any sprouting?  I would love to hear comments or suggestions.  :)


  1. I have sprouted lentils to munch on. I actually had a plastic thingy with three levels with small slots. I just had to add water and it would drip through and keep the beans perfectly moist. I would love to find another one of those. I did dried peas also. Yummy.

  2. Dried peas? So do they end up crunchy? Or do you have to reconstitute them to eat?

    Thanks so much for following my blog, Kelley. Love you!

  3. Love your blog! It has really come alive since a month ago. Full of energy and such good information. Yea for you.
