Quick Answers



Can I freeze seed sprouts?

A variety of seed sprouts such as alfalfa, mung beans, chickpeas, soybeans, etc. may be frozen. First, wash the sprouts and remove seed coats. Heat one layer at a time in steam for 3 minutes. Cool promptly in cold water and drain. Pack in moisture-vapor-proof containers, label, and freeze.
