Sprouts…oh, how I love thee!

I get happy cravings for sprouts.  My favorite is a huge layer of spicy sprouts on a pita sandwich.  They are great in salads and I have been known to eat them by the ‘pinch full’ as a Good-for-Me snack.  They are the perfect green ‘crunch’ and they are so good for you.  They can be hard to find at the grocery though.  I remember searching for them years ago and finding out there was a recall on them due to an E coli breakout in our area.  So, I stopped my search and worry about E coli (yuck!) and  started to grow my own sprouts.  It only required a few tools, (i.e., a jar and seeds) no dirt, minimal care and I could do it in my kitchen.  The result was fabulous!  It’s been years since I’ve bought them.  I’ll share how to grow your own in the coming week…..
