I have had a few requests on how to actually sprout the sprouts so here is the way I do it. As you can see from the photograph, I have a lovely sprouting jar. You do not however need anything as fancy as this. Get yourself a large jar and make holes in the lid, and voila, you have your very own and very cheap sprouting jar.
TO MAKE YOUR SPROUTS GROW:
- Day 1: take between one teaspoon to one tablespoon of your sprouting mix and add to your jar. Cover with water and leave overnight
- Day 2: drain the water (that is why you need the holes in the lid). Cover with water and drain and leave to stand overnight
- Day 3 onwards: cover with water, drain and leave to stand overnight, until you have lovely sprouts
- Before putting your sprouts into the fridge to keep, make sure that they are very dry! They will keep quite well in a sealed container
