  • 2 cups sprouted unhulled sesame seeds
  • 4-8 dates
  • Vanilla essence to taste
  • Filtered water

Method:

  • Put the sesame seeds in a food processor with the dates, vanilla & 5-6 cups of water. Blend on high until smooth & creamy (about 2 minutes).
  • Strain the milk; add more dates & a pinch of cardamom for a sweet, spicy flavour. Sip & enjoy!

Directions

Please Note: This product consists of the sprouting seeds only; sprouting jars & stand are not included. You will need a full standard sprouting kit to grow your seeds.

  • Add 3-4Tbsp of your dry seeds to a clean sprouting jar; enough to lightly cover the bottom of an upright jar.
  • Cover the sprouting jar with the mesh screen & secure it with a rubber band.
  • Cover your dry seeds with 2-4cm water & soak for 6-8 hours or overnight.
  • Drain & rinse in fresh water, swirling gently while draining to disperse the seeds across the surface of the sprouting jar. Place the jar at an angle on your sprouting stand.
  • Keep your sprouting jar in natural light but never in direct sunlight. Rinse your seeds 2-3 times a day in cool water. The water should be rinsed clear.
  • Harvest within 2-3 days of the “tails” and/or greenery appearing from the seeds.
  • Drain the sprouts well & leave 2-4 hours to dry on your sprouting stand, before transferring to an airtight, covered storage container.
  • Enjoy your sprouts in 3-7 days; keep them refrigerated in an airtight container. Start sprouting new seeds every 2- 3 days for a continuous, fresh supply.

Top Tips:

  • Never eat sprouts that have started to smell bad.
  • Always wash your containers thoroughly between plantings.
  • Remove any broken or damaged seeds before you start sprouting.
  • Double rinsing is recommended for beans & legumes.
  • Never eat sprouted soy beans with brown spots.
  • Unsprouted seeds should be stored in an airtight container in a cupboard. The germination life of seeds is generally 2-5 years.
