Do it Yourself – How to Sprout
1. Soak seeds overnight in a bowl with water.
2. The next morning, drain water and rinse with fresh water once or twice.
Place in a sprouting bag, or sprouting jar without any water. (Should still be humid, not completely dry.)
3. Every morning and night rinse with fresh water, to keep the sprouts wet and clean of mould.
Ensure the sprouts never dry up, and repeat process until your desired length or age of sprout.
4. Rinse out with fresh water and serve immediately in salads, wraps, smoothies, juices, breads/crackers, or just eat as a snack.
