Basic instructions for sprouting healthy addition to salads, sandwich toppings, or a stand alone snack.
Put 3 tablespoons of seed into your sprouting jar. Add 2-3 times as much cool (60°-70°) water. Mix seeds up to assure even water contact for all. Let stand in water 6-12 hours.
Drain off soak water. Rinse thoroughly in cool water. Drain thoroughly! (this is important)
Set sprouting jar anywhere out of direct sunlight and at room temperature (70° is optimal) between rinses. Ensure sufficient air circulation is provided.
Rinse with cool water and drain thoroughly every 12 hours for 3-7 days. Always drain thoroughly. Refrigerate after growing if you don’t eat them all straightaway.
Food borne illness is a possibility when consuming raw products. Sprouts will smell fresh not musty. Keep them cool.
