While the Europeans were dying off with scurvy and eating boiled grain and salted meat... The Chinese were happily not having to buy barrels of lime juice from the West Indies.... simply sprouting beans and seeds...
Mung Beans sprout really fast...
Alfalfa (lucern as we OzTralians call it) and many other grains/beans, keep for ages and provide ALL the vitamins you'll ever need + minerals when sprouted. (in salt water !!)
Plenty of info on the net re: sprouting.
Fresh is best

Wrap citrus fruits in alumunium (aluminum to you yank types) foil... stays fresh for WAY longer... wrap tight!
