WHY YOU SHOULD GROW YOU OWN BEAN SPROUTS

1. FRESH ANYTIME YOU WANTI buy bean sprouts every time I go to lớn Asian grocery store. It’s one of the ingredients I use often in many Asian stir-fry recipes. The thing about bean sprouts is they don’t last for a long time, especially if you buy them from the store. Who know how long they have been sitting at the store and by the time you bring them home, they usually only last for 2-3 days before they turn into a mush completely. A while ago I wrote this how khổng lồ keep bean sprouts fresh longer and even with that, it can only extend for up to 5 days max.
