Healthy rewards from small garden spaces & good carbs
One common question that is asked by customers who are considering growing their own microgreens at home is whether the microgreens will keep on growing after the initial harvest cut.
This question derives from a need to be thrifty consumers and to have their growing efforts be ongoing.
The delicate and tiny nature of washing microgreen leaves can cause a soggy mess and create a dilemma in making a decision whether or not to wash them before use. Any fresh food produce that ages in the refrigerator is subject to additional bacteria that occurs during the natural aging process. Therefore modern food hygiene guidelines warn consumers to wash fresh produce before consumption even if the manufacturer makes claims the produce has been pre-washed. In this blog I will share some of the ideas I have received from market customers and my own experimentation to show how microgreens can be washed before serving by following a few simple tips.
