How to sprout adzuki beans?

March 5, 2008 1:59pm CST
I found a description of how to sprout mung beans. Thought I'd try it with adzuki beans as I couldn't find a method on the internet. Needless to say it didn't work. Hence the post now.

All beans sprout the same way, so I'm not sure how you failed with adzuki beans, unless you didn't wait long enough. I seem to remember that they did take longer and weren't as successful as mung, which are the easiest. Can you tell me what method you used as I have never had any problems sprouting beans.

the details I got was to warm them under a tap, rinseing in hot water. leave them for 8 hours in water in dark warm place. I used the airing cupboard, it's very warm. Pat dry and fold gently in tissue then put back in cupboard for 24 hours. If you want longer sprouts then wet them again, put in tissue then back in cupboard for 24 hours. What do you think? I will appreciate any reply, even if you tell me it's all wrong- I used to work in a health food store as a teenager and I'm sure mung beans was easy and less involved than my adopted method. But I can't remember well due to head injury but that's an entirely different story.

The way I sprout beans is to wash them and then put in a sprouter and leave in the dark. Every day I pour water over them but I've never left them soaking in water at all. Maybe that is where you are going wrong. If you don't have a sprouter, you could possibly try soaking the beans every day and leaving them on a damp tissue in the airing cupboard. If you want to do a lot of sprouting a sprouter is so useful and you get guaranteed results. A cheap option is a jar with muslim and you simply rinse and drain the beans every day.
