I never like to buy alfalfa sprouts or most other sprouts from the grocery store because I am paranoid about all the outbreaks of E. coli and Salmonella that are reported from not being able to wash them properly. This combined with the fact that I am a sucker for weird kitchen/gardening implements caused me to buy this Seed Sprouter contraption from an online garden store called, Hirt's. I was pretty impressed by the rapid service and prices so I would recommend them from that point of view. Don't know if the thing works yet because I am just on Step 1 of the included instructions, so stay tuned!

I have started to soak the mustard sprout

and the mung bean sprouts.

Tomorrow I will transfer them to their new sprouting environment and in at most one week, I'm hoping to have some tasty results!

Cool! I have avoided sprouts ever since I got sick on vacation from eating them. Looking forward to seeing how your sprouts turn out.

Nooschi, sorry to hear that sprouts gave you a bellyache. I strongly recommend trying this at home. It's really easy, fun and tasty. See my follow-up post for more details!
