Tasty, crunchy sprouts are a delicious addition to salad, and stir fry. Here is an easy way to grow your own sprouts using glass jars. You’ll need a glass jar, a mason canning style jar works nicely for this, a piece of cheesecloth, some sprout seeds, and water.
Place a few spoonfuls of the seeds at the bottom of the jar. Fill the jar with water about a quart of the way full. Cover the opening of the jar with cheese cloth and then put on the ring lid to the jar. Let the seeds soak overnight. In the morning, drain the seeds and rinse them thoroughly two times. Make sure to drain them well to prevent mold. Shake the seeds around in the jar so they evenly disperse as you lay it on it’s side.
Repeat the rinsing process about every 8 hours. The sprouts should be ready to eat in a few days wen they have grown long enough to eat. When you see the tail sprout out of the seed they are ready. To clean off the hulls soak the sprouts in a bowl of water and swirl them around with your hand. Push the sprouts down and the hulls should float to the top to easily be ladled off. Drain the sprouts and enjoy!
