It only holds 2 quarts of regular yogurt. 8 quart Instant pot will make a gallon of yogurt at once. So I got two, so I can just stack them up on on each other in the fridge. I am so excited to use these on my next batch of homemade yogurt.

I bought myself a solar oven for my birthday! I just made red pepper kale frittata for breakfast. Took 1hr and 25m in the solar oven. So cool.
I just put dinner in the solar oven. Black bean chili! Can’t wait! Will take 4-6 hrs. Solar oven cooks like your slow cooker but only cooler. No electricity, no propane only need the warmth of the sun = Free!
Well at the The Community Closet Thrift Store there was this huge wheatgrass grower machine. I remember seeing it for sale for $10. I thought of buying it but I figured parts were missing. A bit later I saw it was put in our free bins so I took it home to see what info I could find on it.
Wow! I checked it out and it was a EasyGreen Automatic sprouter. eBay had it for almost $200! Looks like I had everything except an outlet timer that starts and shuts down the water mister. I found one online for $13.
Yesterday the timer came in. Sweet! I cleaned the machine up and filled all 5 trays with sprouts; clover, fenugreek, buckwheat, alfalfa & broccoli. I set the timer to mist 15m every 6 hours. Filled the water reservoir and plugged it in. YES THE MISTER WORKS!
24hrs later you can already see tails on a few of the seed trays. Below is a picture at 4pm 9/11/13 & another at 4pm 9/12/13.
DAY #2. Look at those tails!
DAY #4: I started to add a very little amount of food grade hydrogen peroxide and some minerals to the water. I also decided to try some new timer setting I found for Dry Weather . . . they worked well for MT.

Time of day
DAY #6: Harvested some Clover Sprouts this morning for sandwiches! Tasted great!
DAY#7: the alfalfa & broccoli sprouts are ready! There are already tails growing on the 2nd batch of clover & fenugreek seeds.
Didn’t work well growing with just water. The cool thing about the EasyGreen Sprouter is you can use soil in the trays too! Will try in soil next time.
Same as the buckwheat sprouts, didn’t turn out very well with just water, but more grew than I thought. Will try in soil next time.
The alfalfa sprouts took 7-8 days to grow. They turned out great though!
So I would have to say this machine ROCKS! I’m glad I didn’t have to pay $200 but if you have a busy life like mine and love to sprout this Sprouter is so worth the money!
When you juice your greens, fruits & veggies, SAVE THE PULP!!
After you are done juicing dump all your pulp onto dehydrating trays. Set the dehydrator to 145 degrees for 1 hour, then turn down to 95 degrees & dehydrate until dried. Depending how much pulp you have this could take 8-16hrs. Once dried store in a glass jar. Grind to a powder with a juicer mincing screen or a clean coffee grinder. I love using the powder in my RAW food creations for RAW Fiber, smoothies & when baking to add a little more health power.
