Soak 1/4 cup seeds overnight in room temperature water. Drain and put in sprouting jar or other sprouting unit and follow directions for that unit. Store in a dark environment for several days. On about the fourth day, place in indirect sunlight to develop chlorophyll in sprouts. Rinse and drain daily until sprouts are ready (about 3-5 days). Add 1/2 tsp. of NOW Real Food Citric Acid Powder per pint of rinsing water to reduce mold formation. Enjoy broccoli seeds alone or as part of a salad.
