SUGGESTIONS Maple pea sprouts can be grown comfortably at home:
The first thing to do is to leave the seeds to soak for at least six hours, preferably twelve. In this way, thanks to the water, their volume increases. This will allow the seed, once placed in the sprouter, to germinate more easily. Thanks to the water pressure and increased volume, the seed breaks and allows the sprout to emerge. Five or at most six days will be enough to obtain sprouting. It will be useful to wait for a length of at least 1 cm before consuming them. It is always necessary to wash them before adding them to dishes, whether raw or cooked
