This is the 2nd in my grow your own food series - this deals with the art of sprouting. Yes you can rush out and buy an expensive sprouting kit - or use my technique of recycling materials to grow your own!
It is debatable whether you are saving 'food' miles on this product as you'll need mung beans which'll have come from some far off distance place - but at least you're not importing a finished product which is filled with water rather than a compact seed - it's also a fraction of the price.
1) a container of some sorts - I use a 'butter' spread container
2) a pointy thing
3) mung beans
4) plenty of water
