We tried sprouting these, but they had a little bitter flavor - But LOVE these as Microgreens!!! I use the plastic trays that organic lettuce comes in(you can poke holes in main tray and use the lid as a drip tray, add an inch of soil and plant the pre-soaked peas in the trays- plant thickly. Place in bright window. When several inches high snip with scissors and eat on salads or by themselves with a light dressing. Wonderful!
