Mung Bean Sprouts Success at last
These mung beans are sprouted from the tiny variety of mung beans at the Indian market. Other varieties are larger to begin with and the sprouts are thicker. As the spouts begin to grow, I covered them with several layers of damp newspaper then put a sack of marbles on top to offer resistance to the sprouts. As they grow they push the marbles up creating a thicker stem on the sprout.
