SPROUTING GRAIN TO MAKE FLOUR

Directions:

Use only whole raw non-gmo seeds to sprout

2 cup organic raw whole non-gmo grain seeds (I used red winter wheat berries)

non-chlorinated water (enough to cover the grain to two inches above grain)

1 tablespoon organic apple cider vinegar or lemon juice

Preparation:

Put the rinsed grains into a soaking vessel and cover with water to two inches above the grains. Add the acidic vinegar or lemon juice to help keep bacteria from forming. Stir and cover with a kitchen towel, cheese cloth or other loose fitting lid. Let soak for 12 – 16 hours. Drain thru a mesh sieve and rinse with cool non-chlorinated water. Return to vessel. Rinse 2 – 3 times a day until you see little sprouts start to form. Once you see sprouts put the grains in a dehydrator at 105 degrees for about 18 hours. Remove from dehydrator and grind into flour. The finer the grind the lighter the bread.
