Here is a fun little project that only takes a couple minutes each day. Such little effort and super inexpensive with a huge reward! Here’s all you need:
Thin piece of fabric and rubber band
Any seed that will sprout: alfalfa, mustard, clover, sunflower, etc.
(I found a bag of sprouting seed mix at New Seasons in Portland in the produce section for $6, that lasted me months…)
Add a couple tablespoons of seeds to the jar, fill with filtered water and soak overnight. Next day, pour water out, cover with the fabric and set it on the counter out of the way. Rinse the seeds twice a day, making sure to get most of the water out of the jar. Be prepared to be amazed how fast these suckers grow! When you are satisfied with the size of the sprouts, place in a sunny area for a day to green up the leafy parts. Store in the refrigerator in the same jar. I feel they keep better when they can breathe with the fabric instead of a lid. Enjoy in salads, on scrambled eggs or just create a sprout salad with them. Perfect for when you run out of greens. Delicious and nutritious!
