1. First, pick through and discard any broken, mouldy, discoloured or disfigured seeds. They can contain harmful toxins that you would want to avoid.
2. Wash them and then soak them in cool filtered or spring water for 24-36 hours. I usually do this step at night. Try to rinse and change the water every 6 hours.
3. After soaking, keep the seeds damp. I put them in a large sieve, and rinse them under the tap a couple of times a day. The seeds need to be kept damp and aired, but not wet.4. On the 3rd day you should see a small tail about 1cm long! Now your beans are read to be enjoyed!
