DIY Sprouting Jar

Posted by on Oct 2, 2017 in DIY | No Comments

Ever wondered how to grow your own sprouts? It’s easier than you think! You can easily sprout a wide range of seeds at your home in just a couple days. Once you get the hang of it, you can have a steady supply of fresh and crunchy sprouts ready to add to your salads, smoothies, stir-frys, soups and much more.

Here’s my DIY solution to make your sprouting dream come true!

STEP 1
With a hammer and a hole puncher make many small holes in the jar’s lid. That’s it! Your sprouting jar is ready.

STEP 2
Place your preferred seeds in the jar and soak them for a few hours. Here I used some mung bean seeds, but you could also use lentils or soybeans. Click here for more ideas and information.

STEP 4
Drain the water out of the jar and place it upside down in a bowl, as shown on the photo below. Water the seeds once a day by filling the jar with some water, draining it out and placing the jar back in the bowl.

STEP 5
Eat your delicious sprouts! You can consume them at different stages of growth. Once they reach full size put the jar in the fridge to slow their growth. Consume within a couple of days.
