Selection and Storage
Selecting and storing your sprouts for maximum freshness and flavour is easy if you follow these few simple steps.
Only purchase sprouts that are stored in the refrigerator. They must look crisp and bright with plump fresh stalks. Avoid soggy sprouts with discolouration and make sure you check the use-by date before purchasing.
When you get your sprouts home, store them in the vegetable compartment of your refrigerator immediately. Always wash your sprouts before consumption and allow enough time before cooking for all the excess water to drain properly.
After cooking it’s best to use a ventilated container to refrigerate any left over sprouts you may have.
