    Default Cooking: Mung beans - expiration date

    As long as I haven't opened the package, how long do dry mung beans last on the shelf and still be good for sprouting?

    I have a couple bags of "dragonfly" brand and thought I'd "try again" at sprouting -- if I remember, it's a more tedious process than you think.

    Are you saying you have mung beans? They'll keep practically forever.
    BTW: cook up the beans with a ham hock and you've got dinner. They're
    a short cook. Slightly longer than lentils, not nearly as long as
    most beans.

    you can eat them?

    Don't care for lentils too much -- do they taste like that?

    you say keep forever but will a fresher date be easier (much?) to sprout?

    I'm not very good at telling people what things taste like. Think:
    bean... or maybe it tastes like chicken.
