2351I’ve been a little obsessed with sprouts lately.  Up until a few weeks ago I had never thought about growing sprouts indoors.  I mean, aren’t hippies the only ones who grow things like sprouts, wheat grass and mung beans?

Have you ever grown sprouts?0352

Before you can actually start your sprouts you’ll need to disinfect the seeds by placing them in a mixture of 2% bleach solution {1 cup water to 1tsp. bleach} for 15 minutes.  From there you simply rinse the seeds thoroughly and you are ready to go.04010521

After rinsing the seeds place them in a quart jar and cover with water about 3 times their depth.  Place a bit of cheesecloth or muslin over the top of the jar.0051

Your seeds will look like this after just 12 hours.109

After the initial soak you will then rinse your seeds, cover with water, swirl, and then carefully drain the water out.0242

You want the seeds to be moist but not sitting in a pool of water.  To achieve this simply prop your quart jar up a little on one end.020

After a few days your sprouts will look like this.234

In about 5-6 days your sprouts will be ready to eat.

Now, was that easy or what?

I grew Sprouts {Sandwich Mix} seeds from Botanical Interests.  You can find them HERE.
