Making Your Own Sprouts

This is soooooooooooo easy!!!
No matter where you live or what time of year it is, you can easily grow fresh greens in your kitchen. I not only use them on salad, I also use them on sandwiches and tacos or whenever I need a stand in for lettuce. And they're packed with vitamins. :O)

1) in a large jar, soak about 1/4 C. of seeds over night in tepid water
2) cover the top of the jar with cheese cloth and secure with a rubber band
3) rinse and drain everyday with tepid water for about 4-5 days & store jar on it's side in a dark spot
4) after they're sprouted, store in a closed, plastic container in the fridge

Hello Mary,
Thank you for your kind comment about our tablescape on The Bloom Girls. I want you to know that Karyn and I are both believers and additionally, Karyn is a foster mom to two sweet babies. She also adopted one of her foster girls, Madison.

The timing for your how-to on growing sprouts is perfect. I was just thinking that I would like to try growing some as well. I've heard it is easy, but I would like to know the best place to buy seeds.

Thanks for the reminder. I haven't sprouted since last summer and I need to get in the groove again. It's so nice to meet you.
