All you need to grow sprouts:
• quart glass jar
• ventilated cover: stocking or cheese cloth or screen
• rubber band
• 2 Tablespoons sprouting seeds of your choice
Day 1: SOAK
Rinse 2 T of seeds. Put in jar and fill a quarter full with room-temperature water. Secure cover with rubber band. Soak overnight.
Day 2: RINSE
Leave ventilated cover on. Drain out the water, rinse and drain again. You want to seeds to be drained, wet and have access to air. Roll the jar around, causing as many seeds to stick to the sides as possible. Lay the jar on its side and let sit over night.
Days 3-5: REPEAT
Now you are just repeating the rinsing. Rinse the seeds at least each 24 hours with cool water, repeating Day 2. The idea is to rid the seeds of disease organisms and toxins that accumulate in the warm, moist conditions inside the jar.
Days 5-6: EAT
Spread out your sprouts on a paper towel and let the sun shine on them for 10 minutes. This is imperative to activate enzymes, making their leaves greener and drying the moisture so they do not spoil.
