Homemade Sprouts
  • 2 tbsp sprouting seeds of choice
  • filtered water
  • Medium sized mason jar
  • Sprouting lid
  1. Before starting, make sure your sprouting jars are thoroughly clean to discourage mold and bacteria growth.
  2. In a medium sized mason jar, add about 2 tbsp of seeds. This measurement does not need to be exact, I measured them out the first time, then after that just eye-balled the amount.
  3. Cover seeds with filtered water.
  4. Place mason jar lid on jar and place on counter overnight. 8-12 hours is ideal. You want your jars to sit in a cool, dry place without direct sunlight,
  5. After soaking 8-12 hours, replace mason jar lid with sprouting lid and drain the water out.
  6. Add new filtered water and swoosh around a few times.
  7. Drain water and set jar upside down (sprouting lid stays on) to continue draining in a bowl.
  8. Twice a day rinse, swoosh and drain filtered water in the mason jar.
  9. The sprouts will sit on the counter for 2-7 days (depending on type of sprout) until they are ready!
  10. Once sprouted, rinse in cold water over strainer.
  11. Make sure no mold is present.
  12. Dry sprouts on paper towels.
  13. Store sprouts in the fridge in an air tight container for about a week.
  14. Enjoy!
