Planting & Harvesting

SPROUTING BASICS:

  • Rinse approximately 3 tbsp. of seeds and soak overnight in fresh, non-chlorinated, room temperature water.
  • Drain the water, rinse the seeds once or twice, and drain again.
  • Place the seeds in a clean, sanitized sprouting jar or other container with a lid that allows easy draining and air circulation.
  • Do not add water. Seeds should be slightly damp, not wet.
  • Twice a day (morning and evening) rinse with fresh water and drain.
  • Continue to rinse and drain daily until sprouts are desired size.
  • Rinse well before serving. Sprouts taste best when eaten fresh, but well-drained sprouts will keep up to one week in the refrigerator.
