The Video Thursday segment today features how to sprout grains at home and make your own sprouted flour. China is credited with developing the method for germinating seeds many centuries ago and on long ocean voyages, Chinese sailors used sprouted mung beans as a source of vitamin C for preventing scurvy. Vitamin C is produced in significant quantities when you sprout seeds. It is absent from unsprouted seeds! Many other nutrients are increased substantially from sprouting grains, as I go over in the videos.
If after watching these 2 short videos below you have interest in trying your hand at making your own sprouted flour for baking at home, please contact your local Weston A. Price Chapter Leader for a list of local buying clubs in your area so that you can source your own grain from a quality local co-op.
If you prefer reading about how to sprout flour instead of watching a video, this blog post will tell you how.
Please post any questions on anything I go over in these videos in the comments section just below this blog and I will do my very best to answer them.
