Supplies:

Quart Mason jar

Mesh bag or cheesecloth

Metal ring from jar or rubber band

Organic spouting seeds

Step 1

Place 1-2 Tbsp. of seeds in the mesh bag.

Step 2

Put the mesh bag in the jar, with open end hanging out over the top of the jar.  Secure mesh bag with a rubber band or the metal ring.  Fill the jar with water and allow seeds to soak overnight, at least 8 hours.

Step 3

Remove the rubber band, or metal ring.  Take mesh bag out of the jar.  Discard water.  Run mesh bag under the tap for a few minutes to thoroughly rinse the seeds.  Put the mesh bag back into the jar, with open end hanging out over the top of the jar.  Be sure that bag is not resting on the bottom of the jar, this allows any excess water to drain off of the seeds.  Secure mesh bag with a rubber band or the metal ring.

Step 4

Rinse twice a day, morning and evening are great times.  In 2-3 days you will have sprouts.   Dry sprouts off as much as possible.  Place sprouts in a clean dry Mason jar with a lid or in a dry mesh bag and store in the refrigerator in the produce drawer for up to 2 weeks.
