I am very excited to have recently learned how to grow my own sprouts to eat on salads, sandwiches, and more! After testing a few growing methods, I have found that growing them in a glass jar is the easiest and fastest way.

  • Sprouting Seeds (This includes alfalfa, broccoli, clover, radish and many more. Check out this list of over 100 kinds from SproutPoeple.org.)
  • Medium Glass Jar
  • Cheesecloth
  • Rubber Band
  • Water

Step 1: Soak Your Seeds

Fill the jar half way with water, and add 2 tablespoons of sprouting seeds. Swirl the water around a bit to get as many seeds as possible to sink. Cover the opening of the jar with a double layer of cheesecloth, and secure it with a rubber band. Leave the seeds to soak overnight (8-12 hours)

After 5 days. It was so easy! Thanks for this :) will definitely make it again and again.
Nice work! They look delicious :)
<p>When I started to grow sprouts the tutorial I used back then said that when sprouts are ready, spread them to direct sunlight for a little while, they get some nice, healthy, delicious greenness, and after that put them in the fridge. You should try it too! :)</p>
Thanks for the tip :) I will try that next time to see what happens. I am happy with the amount of green they have now, but I will try it just to see what happens.
thank you! will try it ;-)
I don't even eat any of the food you mentioned but I want to try this just because. Lol Thanks!
<p>You just made my day, great idea!!!</p>
<p>Very cool. Will have to try this.</p><p>Where do you keep them? on a window frame or bench top. Plus </p><p>how long do they keep or last for. Do you have to put them in the fridge?</p>
I keep them on my kitchen counter out of direct sunlight. When they are done growing, I put them in an airtight container in the fridge. They stay good about a week from when they go in the fridge.
