Description of Sprouting Jar for Sprouting Needs, NOW Foods
Sprouting Jar - Stainless Steel Mesh Lid
Sprouting seeds are a convenient and economical way of producing your own tasty vegetables. Kids can help by learning how to "nourish" the changing seeds, too.
Place two tablespoons of seeds or 1/2 cup of legumes/grains in a sprouting jar with three times as much water as sees. Soak overnight. For many small seeds, five hours of soaking is sufficient.
Drain the water from the jar. Rinse seeds in fresh, luke-warm water and drain again. For well drained seeds/sprouts, lay jar at an angle in a warm (70°F), dark place.
Rinse and drain seeds twice a day. In hot and dry weather, you may need to rinse the seeds three times a day. In very humid weather, the seeds should be kept in a dry place. Turn jar over gently. Overturning the jar rapidly will cause shifting in the sprouting seeds. This can break the tender shoots and kill the sprout. This breakage causes the sprout to spoil. Sprouts should be ready to eat in 3-5 days, depending on the seed used.
