Sprouting is easy and quick – especially if you’re impatient like me and want your veggies to grow and be ready to eat now! Great activity to do with the kiddos. They sell kits on Amazon or at health food stores. If you already have a mason jar, all you need is the lid and seeds, which can also be found on Amazon. I’ve included links under the Products section on my Recommendations page.
  1. Soak seeds in water for 8-12 hours.
  2. Empty soaking water and rinse/dump until water is clear. Shake and swirl to empty water until no more drips out.
  3. Set jar at an angle, in order for it to drain excess water while getting necessary air.
  4. Rinse, swirl and drain twice a day! If you forget, no big deal – they’ll still grow. And if you find you need to stop the process for a few days, simply cover the lid, put a rubber band around the top, and store in fridge. Resume when you can.
  5. After 5-6 days, your sprouts are done!!
  6. Rinse in a salad spinner and pour off hulls if desired (they don’t alter taste but may effect freshness once refrigerated after a few days). Get sprouts as dry as possible before storing in an airtight container in the fridge for 7 days, possibly a few more. The drier they are going in, the longer they last.
