Sprouting beans and lentils in Miriam’s Earthen Cookware is healthy and easy. The pot is 100% non-toxic and so is your food. Because these pots are breathable and rich in nutrients the germinating beans sprout with no issues and look healthy. For Organic Sprouting: Soak the lentils for 12 hours, beans for 24 hours. Drain the water and add your soaked lentils and beans to the wet pot. Set aside in a warm, dark place covered for 24 hours for lentils and 36 hours for beans. This window of timing and duration applies to freshly bought dried beans and lentils. If lentils/beans were purchased 6 months or prior, increase soak and germination times by 12 hours.
Fermenting in MEC is much healthier and easy process. While fermenting takes days and months to accomplish in other vessels, because these pots are breathable, it allows just enough oxygen to get in and beautifully ferments your food in 2-3 days at the most. For Organic Fermenting: Add your prepared ingredients to the pot, add sea salt, mix thoroughly, cover and set aside to ferment for 24-48 hours. It is a good idea to season your pot before using for fermenting
For Food Storage: You may store your eggs, flour, beans, potatoes in a safe and non-toxic way in these pots. The EMF radiation from refrigerator causes depletion of essential nutrients but storing your food outside (of the refrigerator) in these pots can prevent this nutritional loss. Customers who store their eggs say “they last longer and taste fresher”. If storing eggs, please place a folded towel in the bottom of the pot as a cushion.
For Organic Gardening: Add soil, add your seeds, place the pot in a spot that can get sufficient sunlight. It is a good idea to elevate the pot slightly to allow for air circulation and drainage. A tip to watering your plants: Check to see if the soil is dry and if it is dry, water the plant. Don’t overwater, to the extent that you see water stagnant on the surface.
Can I use the Organic Gardening/Sprouting/Fermenting Pot for Cooking?
Yes, you can attempt to cook in the gardening/sprouting/fermenting pots, but we cannot guarantee they will last. For the best results, we recommend cooking using pots and pans from our Regular Line. The Gardening/Sprouting/Fermenting pots come without lids, so if you wish to try to use them for cooking, you can order a lid separately from here: Replacements for Pot/Pan Lids
