Corn Shoot Success

Check out our latest success in the sprouting department! I cannot believe how sweet sprouted organic popcorn is! In fact the leafy green it's so sweet, it's probably going to be too sweet for some folks. We do have to cut the shoots, kind of like wheatgrass, from the roots.  I had hoped to deliver them intact, but the seeds are grainy and inedible once sprouted. The seed just isn't very tasty, while the roots is. I think the best way to deliver these, would be to cut only the shoots and package up, and toss the germinated seed and roots to our chickens. Our chickens sure enjoyed my first experimental batch of roots and seeds. They pretty much devoured the little pile of offerings like it was their first taste of candy.
