Sprouting seeds is really easy for anyone to do, even the kids or grand kids can do it. It is perfect for anytime of the year and produces some wonderful edible greens, for a fraction of the price of store bought sprouts.
If you are doing a few varieties at a time you will need to use separate jars for each seed.
You will need:
Seeds for sprouting like alfalfa, mung beans, lentils or chick peas
Square of material like muslin or cotton, a hanker chief works well
Fist place a couple of tablespoons of seeds in the jar and half fill the jar with water.
Place the fabric over the top of the jar opening and secure it in place with a rubber band.
Leave to soak for at least 6 hours, then drain the liquid and rinse a few times.
Lay out some paper towels on a plate and spread the seeds out on top.
Keep the plate in a warm area and spray the seeds with water when the paper towel feels dry.
Within a few days you will have some lovely edible sprouts. They can be stored in a container in the fridge.
