Organic Sprouting Seeds
Adzuki Sprouting Seeds, 1 Lb [Organic]
Has a strong, nutty, sweet flavor. Adzuki is also known as the "Mercedes" of beans!
Note: Adzuki Beans will pale somewhat as they swell with water. Before you end your soak, check them: If you see that on some of your beans, part of the bean (one end usually) is still as dark as it was before soaking, they need a little more time to soak - to make sure they have taken up all the water they need.
For that reason we generally soak Adzukis for 12 hours.
If we are in a hurry we'll use warmer water - 80° is a good starting point if you want to experiment with shorter soak periods, but be careful not to go too hot - it can cook your seeds in which case they will never sprout.
Adzukis also tend to have more hard seed than other seed types. If you buy your seed from us this is not a concern, but if you buy Adzuki or other seeds elsewhere be sure to examine them after soaking to make sure there are no hard seeds (seeds that are as hard after soaking as before) lurking at the bottom. If there are - throw those (the hard ones) out! They are easy to spot as they are smaller than those that are swollen with water.
