Making Home-Made Bean Sprouts
Put 1/3 cup dried munggo(mung beans) in a shallow pan and add 1/4 cup water to partially cover the beans.Wet a double layer of paper towels; spread it over the beans making sure to cover them completely.Keep pan in a cool dark place in the basement or in a cupboard under the sink for ease of watering.Add enough water everyday if necessary to keep paper towel wet. Don’t add too much water because they will rot instead of sprout.Resist the temptation to peek under the paper towel until after 4th or 5th day. By then the stems should begin to come out. It takes from 7 to 10 days (depending on the dampness of the place) for the skin to be completely separated from the beans.When the skins are completely separated, fill pan to the brim with water and allow skins to float then skim them off and discard.Drain and pick over beans to remove any leftover skin.

Use immediately or place in a plastic bag and refrigerate but they taste best when used within three days. Makes 1-1/2 to 2 cups bean sprouts.
