Dutch Stroopwafels are a much loved cookie in Holland. They are served fresh, the size of a dessert plate, packaged they are usually between 3-4 inches. I would prepare fresh ones on site as well as having packaged ones for sale. The preparation can be seen on this video on Youtube; https://youtu.be/7oB50N96Ce4 They have long been a popular item in Holland and are now going more international. They are currently gaining popularity as a fast fuel food for athletes. They are fairly simple to make fresh and are a delicious treat. The packaged ones keep really well and can be warmed for added flavour to soften, changing them from a wafer to a softer consistency.
Fun and interesting activities for the kids - all about food!

Eatmore Sprouts & Greens Ltd. was established in 1975. Carmen and Glenn Wakeling the current owners, have been involved in the company for over 25 years. Eatmore Sprouts employs 40 people who work hard every day to bring our products to you. Organic Certification is important to us as this gives you the assurance that the foods we produce are grown using the best practices to support a healthy planet. Food safety is a big part of what we do. We have a vigorous food safety system which includes a multifaceted testing, cleaning and training program. We are a HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) certified facility.
Eatmore Sprouts has many environmental initiatives under way:
• Organic Certification
• Powered by: Bullfrog power. (Wind power sold into the grid for all the electricity we use and renewable natural gas)
• We have 48 solar panels
• Our greenhouses are heated with Hot water heat that is created using a wood gasification boiler called a “Garn”
• All the heat from our processing waste water is harvested and by using a heat pump system we heat our buildings
• Rammed earth heat sink technology: The most recent greenhouse we built was designed based on mass heat storage. The beds store both heat from the boiler and from natural solar gain during the day and this heat radiates out during cold damp nights here in BC.
• Canadian Organic Seed supply: We buy all our seeds from a Canadian Organic supplier. The majority of the seeds are produced on Canadian soil!
Please enjoy our sprouts and greens, we sure do!
We are a, family run farm, formerly certified organic (still using the same practices) producing high quality fruits and vegetables in the Comox Valley.
