At some stage, I’ll post a list of different seeds and nuts to sprout, and how long each needs to sprout, but for now here’s how you do buckwheat sprouts.
Technically speaking, buckwheat isn’t a grain but a seed. It is high in calcium and boron. In its sprouted form it’s a nutritional powerhouse, containing bioflavenoids, all of the B vitamins, selenium, magnesium, manganese, Co-enzyme Q10, and others. Sprouts are a really fantastic way of getting tons of nutrition in an economical way, as they are cheap to buy.
How to sprout buckwheat
1) Place your buckwheat into a jar, or 2 or 3 jars if you are making a large quantity of Raw Buckwheat Granola, filling it no more than halfway. Alternatively you can use a bowl.
2) Cover with twice the amount of water and stir the seeds in that float on the top. After at least 2 hours (or overnight is easy to remember), drain in a colander and rinse well. The buckwheat will be gooey until it’s rinsed well.
3) Sprouts will form after about 2 days, or less in the warmer months.
Use in granola, salads, and for raw dehydrated breads and crackers.
