    I know that you guys have moved beyond sprouting, but I am getting to this discussion rather late.

    I usually sprout the pinto beans that I buy from the grocery store. I don’t know if my #10 cans of pintos will sprout or not after 10 years, but, the bags from the grocery store sprout great. I tried to sprout some of my hard red winter wheat without much luck, but they still cooked up nicely.

    Pinto bean sprouts cook up much faster than beans that are just soaked overnight. We try to eat a pot of sprouted pinto beans each week to get the kids used to the flavor and texture. They call them beans with “tails.” Below is a pic of the beans when they are sprouted:

    I was able to upload a pdf comparison using USDA data on pinto beans vs. pinto bean sprouts. I had to take out the water content to make an apples to apples comparison. This is not scientific but you can see that sprouted beans provide different nutrition that unsprouted beans.

    MMPaints will be happy to know that I never intend to plant the beans I spout, because I will need them to survive, initially.

    Now If I would just get my rice to sprout too! :rofl:

    I think just doing what we’re already doing–like each week going to sam’s and buying 50 lbs of rice (and 10 cans of tuna today also).
