Okay, I am having issues with the recipes.
When someone says (example) “1 cup buckwheat, soaked and sprouted for 2 days”, I, after spending years reading recipe books, immediately think “1 cup of buckwheat that is going to be soaked and sprouted”. However, a few people have said “That is after sprouting.” which doesn’t make logical sense to me – because the sprouting is listed after the ingredient.
I think if it is a measurement of sprouted buckwheat, it should be stated “1 cup sprouted buckwheat”, or “1 cup of buckwheat sprouts”, or something like that; this is simply because I have no clue how much buckwheat to start with to get 1 cup of it, and I don’t want to soak 1 cup and end up with 5 cups of buckwheat sprouts that I can’t use! :o
Otherwise you might could say (just an example because I don’t know the quantities), “1/4 cup of buckwheat, to sprout and equal 1 cup” or “for sprouting” or something like that.
Hope I don’t sound coarse – I’m just a bit flustered (don’t worry – I’m not angry ;-) )
Thanks for listening to my whining! :D
