How To Grow Sprouts

Hi All!
Recently I've been loving sprouts on my salads and sandwiches. I enjoy gardening and thought I might try growing my own sprouts & it turned out to be so easy! Today I'm going to share with you how you can grow your own sprouts with a few easy household materials. 

Materials //
* Water! 

Step 1 //
Place seeds in a mason jar, cover with the cheesecloth and secure the lid. Rinse the seeds 3 or 4 times and then fill the jar so the seeds are covered with water. Let the seeds soak overnight. 
Step 2 //
Drain seeds and rinse them. Continue to rinse seeds every morning and night in cold water. 
Step 3 // 
After 2 or so days you will notice the seeds beginning to sprout- continue to rinse them twice a day until they are at your desired length. In general, it takes about a week to grow them to a good length
Step 4 // 
Rinse a final time and store in a container that allows for air flow. I store mine in the fridge. 

My favorite sprouts are alfalfa (pictured above), I also love sprouting lentils. I generally purchase the seeds at our local gardening store. I recommend always thoroughly washing your seeds to ensure there is nothing on them before sprouting them. 

Let me know if you try to grow your own!
