TASTE • EDIBLE PARTS

Organic green pea sprouts have a sweet taste
of fresh snow peas.

Green peas for sprouting are harvested and dried
more gently than peas planted in the garden. Moreover,
they are not treated with anti-fungi as ordinary seeds
for garden cultivation. Anti-fungi means, the seeds have
been given a layer of fungicide on the surface.
Seeds certified for sprouting are of course not
treated with anti-fungi substances.

You can eat the whole pea sprout when the white
tail/tip is 1-1,5 cm long. At that stage, the pea is
delicious, crisp and has bright colors.

Pea sprouts are grown in spouting devices without
neither soil nor fertilizer. They taste best if you remove
the transparent hull just before you eat the sprouts.

The peas can also be grown into organic pea shoots.
If you choose this, the peas are planted in a pot with
soil to nourish the plant - sprouts however are always
cultivated without soil.

Both pea sprouts and pea shoots can be eaten raw.
Only the roots and pea on pea shoots are cut away.

RECIPES WITH PEA SPROUTS AND SHOOTS

Pea sprouts are one of my personal favorites. They
are sweet, crisp and easy to use in all salads and
green protein smoothies.

I also use pea sprouts for spreads or dips.

I rarely grow pea shoots, but for a party, I can find that
a pot of homegrown organic pea shoots are always
a hit as host gift for both men and women.
