There are many ways of sprouting. I happen to like the sproutpeople.com sprouters best of all. Steve's book is a priceless tool for anyone interested in sprouting... it has all kinds of neat tips and suggestions.
Also, one suggests doing a web search on Dr. Budwig's Diet... as most people are seriously deficient in essential fatty acids of the proper type. I take my oil with a little bit of live yogurt.
Anyway... I would not want Steve's book, including his Kitchen Garden book... missing from my shelves!
As Hippocrates said: "Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food."
Friends of mine recommended it to me - they have an attractive set-up of baskets of sprouts growing in little seed-germinator covered plastic trays. They are thrilled with the book, and we are excited about starting to sprout. We did sprouts years ago in jars, but this system is better.
Though the book could be more condensed, it's still an easy read in a few hours. And where else is this vital information available in such thorough detail? If you are considering sprouting, you will find the information valuable.
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.
