- Sprouting Instructions
*All you’ll need is a clean jar (any size will work with your starter kit). We thought about including a jar with our Sprout Starter Kit but then we’d have to push a wheelbarrow everywhere we went.
Warning: Growing sprouts is extremely addictive and may increase your love of healthy food.
Studies show that if you grow one batch then you’ll want to grow another, and another, and another. But that’s okay, it’s a good addiction. Using our Sprout Starter Kit may lead to better health, increased energy, and feeling of success. Side effects may include intense cravings for fresh, organic food, and a dislike for anything processed.
- Make sure your jar is clean (most important step)
- Place seeds in your jar
- Cover your jar with the mesh and secure it with the rubber band
- Fill the jar half way with tap water. You can use any type of water except reverse osmosis (There are no minerals in it)
- Rinse the seeds by swirling the water several times to ensure all seeds have been soaked.
- Drain the water and refill the jar half way
- Set the jar aside (away from direct sunlight) to let the seeds soak for 4-8 hours.
Caring For Your Sprouts
- Once the seeds have been soaked for 4-8 hours swirl the water and drain the jar as best as possible
- Fill the jar with water, swirl and drain again. Try to get as much water out as possible to decrease moisture content and possible mold growth
- Invert the jar at an angle into a bowl (or anything that will collect water). This allows excess water to drain, air to circulate throughout the jar, and your seeds to sprout
- Rinse the sprouts 2-3 times a day. We usually do it at breakfast, dinner, and before bedtime. This literally takes 2 minutes
- Sprouts will be ready to harvest in 4-5 days, or when you see tiny leaves starting to blossom
Harvesting Your Sprouts
- Once your sprouts are ready to eat rinse the jar one more time
- Place the sprouts in a bowl and fill with water to separate the husks. You can remove the husks but it’s not necessary. (It’s quite tedious with small sprouts like alfalfa)
- Dump the sprouts into a colander/strainer or salad spinner. Rinse well
- Enjoy sprouts on your sandwiches, in your salad, soup or stir fry
- Before storing your sprouts set them aside or place onto paper towels. Let dry for 12 hours, and use air tight containers to lock in freshness.
- Sprouts should stay fresh for at least one week. But they’re so delicious that you’ll eat them all in just a few days. So you should start another batch right away!
You’ve officially grown your first batch of sprouts. The best part is that you can reuse the jar and Sprout Starter Kit after a thorough clean. All you need is more seeds, which we can happily supply.
