How to Sprout Soybeans
Wash the soybeans and soak them overnight.
Take a flower pot, sink straine, or any container that has
holes in it for drainage, and can be covered.
Be sure the container is large enough for the beans to swell
to at least six times their original bulk as they sprout.
Place the soaked beans in the container, cover and leave them in a warm place.
Flood with lukewarm water at least 4 or 5 times a day during the sprouting period.
In 4 to 6 days the sprouts will be 2 to 3 inches long.
Then they should be kept in a cool place, just as any fresh vegetable.
Bean sprouts are an excellent addition to raw salads or to an omelet,
chow mein, souffle', meat stew or fricasse'.
The sprouts are very tender and to hold their crispness should not be added
to hot mixtures until just before serving.
