How to eat
Love his book!
Wow! Awesome video! My chickens love, love corn very much they can eat corn on the cob all day every day! I bought them dry whole corn kernels and crushed them cause they are about 9 weeks old so still young but its not the same as corn on the cob but I was thinking about sprouting them can you sprout regular whole grain corn kernels from the feed store? Or does it need to be a specific corn? Thank you very much for sharing! I really want to try this for my little chickie babies! Really appreciate the video had to Subscribed🙂🙂🙂!
Are these more prone to fungus then other seeds? Maybe the antifungal affects taste? I dont know, but I did recently start delving Into the microgreens world. I want to do corn next but now I'm leery. I guess my main question is are corn seeds more prone to fungus. I also wash the heck out of the seeds but I've noticed that didnt help my broccoli sprouts. I think they had a seed borne fungus in them from the manufacturer cause they all got black spots and were stunted and I hear that's a bad seed from the manufacturer
I thought they were supposed to be yellow and never get light throughout the grow period?
What are you using for anti fungaI
Which microgrees that you grow have you found you can grow with out medium?
Do you put weight on top of these corn?
I just sprout them in jam jars.. 🙂
"Nor does 'the' wife" !!!??? What planet are you from bro. Are you a muzi?
You have a microcornfield
Is that water that your spraying on the corn kernals?
GMO corn probably?
They should be completely blacked out. Should be yellow and not green.
HI Brent – love your vids, your humour and light hardheartedness about experimenting. I need to learn to be more like that. I'm doing a input/yields comparison between your no media grow and the soil based growing and it's not making sense to me. This is the info I have on Media Grow for Popping corn. Sow: 260 gr, yield: 496 gr = 1.91 yield factor. With the No Media my estimations are: Sow: 788 gr (2 solo cups 1/2" from the top), yield: 481 gr = yield of .62. Are my calculations correct or am I missing something. Thanks in advance, Mike
Have you considered trying these (and those green bean shoots, etc) in juicing?
are you not supposed to grow popcorn shoots IN total darkness?? I thought that light exposure would make the shoots not taste good.. Most popcorn shoots i have ever seen are yellow and not green cause they haven't photosynthesized.???
Tastes much better with a little fresh mold fungus and without so much of your favorite chemicals where i sometimes use coffee or charcoal rather then your chimicals which defeated the whole purpose like how you don't enjoy natural sugars but keep talking about fake sugars like those spoiled children whom are afraid there gonna die from touching another human or animal because they might be contaminated like your generation was brainwashed to behave and for some reasons is the most unhealthy generation throughout human history because your generation created a total mass genocides of your bodies much needed parasites that process your minerals.
Popcorn shoots taste like grass because, believe it or not, corn is a type of grass. Alligators tastes like chicken because they share a common ancestor (dinosaurs).
Love your Video's. Is there a different type of Corn seed you could try to see if there is a difference in taste? Blessings
So corn sprouts are grown without light, even after germinating?
What's a solo cup? How many ounces or grams?
how much weight a 10×20 tray of sunflower or any other seeds can lift easily or what is the maximum weight seeds can handle
What is "the antifungal"?
Would the taste be less like an artificial sweetener if you tried skipping the fungicide spray? Two applications of that, and I thought — ugh! That's not going to taste too good! Good Luck!
I grow mine in the dark for full period. Harvest yellow before the leaves broaden or start the second leave. Sweeter and more tender when yellow.
You are using anti fungal? Try hydrogen peroxide. Works with Oxygen!
do u eat in salad or cook this stuff
I tried several times but was infected with mushrooms every time I tried. What fungicide can I use if I want to eat it? Tnx a lot.
Hello Brent, is there anything you can add to help to sweeten them?
🌱Happy Gardening my friend, Terry.
Cool, Brent. I don't grow a lot because I do not use a lot of sugar in anything. I used to throw a few in a stir fry to add some sweetness, but have switched to stevia leaves since I use that in my smoothies. Good experiment.
That was an interesting taste you had. I think it does make sense though, because corn kernels are sweet . Great experiment 😊
Interesting that it had a taste like you described. I wouldn't have expected that. Too bad you guys didn't like it that well.
Wow…never did try the corn micro greens before…I have to get one of that portable scale…how much are they run? Before I google them.
What are you using for an antifungal spray?
On day two…mash in…lol.
Im with you on this one mate ! Not a fan of artificial sweeteners… 😒.
Restaurants go for these in the yellow stage. I grew them for 8 days in the dark. Then delivered straight away. Zero sunlight etc.
Still tastes fake sweet though..lol.
Gteat effort as always brother!!
No potatoes No corn shoots for me after your experiment.
I'm growing water cress, green pea, broccoli and fenugreek Hydro Greens as of now they're all looking good. Also I'm on my third batch of hydro sunflower sprouts which all came out great, really enjoying your videos
Hehehe,,head shaking taste buds of sweetness. I remember the first time I grew and tasted the Popcorn Micros,,that's what it did to me. The funny things was Karin liked them, but I didn't grow them again.
However, When I had chooks I used to sprout the grains, and they were in the mix…top chicken food for sure, those sprouts kept them super healthy.
Have an awesome day
Marty & Karin
I’ve grown popcorn microgreens using ground peanuts shells as the growing medium. It works well, too 😊 I don’t like the taste of the sprouts. I think. I’ll try using them in green smoothies 😁
they say that aspartame is natural because it comes from corn. to keep the sweet taste, you need to keep it in the dark until harvest and pick just when the first leaves start to pop. Working on video of last harvest. I put the corn in 1 oz bags then into the clamshell for the store so hopefully the customers will get used to the difference.
It definitely sounds like an odd taste and i don't like the taste of artificial sweetners. It's a shame you and your wife don't like them but at least you know now :-)👍
Good Experiment, great growth, pity the taste is not to your liking, maybe it would grow on you LOL. Good to know the no medium works so well, what is your favorite taste wise so far ?
