Exactly what it says it is - a complete guide to sprouting, jam-packed with lots of information and new ideas. Steve 'Sproutman' Meyerowitz is a bit wacky but very interesting, a zealous advocate of raw food who claims he was cured of a variety of ailments after filling his New York apartment with greenery. "Sprout House" came to feed dozens of people, and Meyerowitz shares with us his findings about nutrition and indoor gardening.
This is a comprehensive guide, with a startling variety of potential sprouts, with many flavors, textures, and medicinal properties, all carefully documented. Step by step tips for growing, what kind of water to use, each sprout's level of difficulty, seed resources, nutritional and chemical compositions, and the Passion of the Sproutman all combine to make this a very useful, even definitive, book on the subject.
My own experiences have been quite simple, basic sprouting in a jar or bowl, and the results were quick and delicious. If you are at all interested in sprouting or raw food, this is a great book, recommended.
