Sproutman's Sprout Bag Why a Bag?
People often assume sprouts are best grown in jars. Indeed, in the hands of a diligent gardener, jars can successfully grow several varieties of sprouts. But jars were never designed for sprouting. Their popularity has more to do with their wide availability and free cost than with their merits as a gardening tool. Any serious sprout grower will soon run into the many limitations of jars as sprouting devices. While there are other types of sprouters available with different features, the sprout bag is a perfect substitution for the jar, with several advantages. A little sprout history lesson follows.

Here is Sproutman's basic sprout bread recipe.
"I purchased a sprout bag last week and just took my sprout bread out of the oven. I'm so very happy with the product. I've been wanting to grow sprouts for years and your bag is so easy. I used wheat berries for my first loaf of bread. It's so good. I also bought your Kitchen Garden Cookbook. You are awesome. Thank you so much!"

Sproutman's Basic Sprout Bread Recipe
Soak 1 cup of hard wheat in a jar for 8-10 hours. Sprout in your Sprout Bag for 2 days. Examine the seed for the shoot. The shoot is short, thick and grows in the opposite direction of the hairlike roots. In order to achieve the desired consistency, the shoot must be the length of the berry. Longer makes the bread too chewy. Now grind the sprouts in a food processor, a Champion juicer (homogenizer section), a wheatgrass juicer, or a cast iron meat grinder. Do not use a blender or Vita Mix. It is crucial that the resulting "sprout dough" is ground to a smooth paste. If necessary, reinsert the sprouts for a second grind. Form a 12 x 3 inch loaf by hand. Wet your hands constantly while shaping. Lay the loaf on a seeded cookie sheet. Sesame or poppy seeds keep the bread from sticking. Bake slowly at 250 degrees F. for approximately 2-4 hours. Lift the bread off the baking tray momentarily after 1-2 hours of baking. This avoids sticking. Bread is done when the underside is firm and no longer mushy. The inside will remain moist while the top of the bread may harden.
