7 Reasons You Need To Sprout Greens In a Jar

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Use a clean glass quart jar.
  • Add two tablespoons of the Sweet Greens Seeds and fill the mason jar with two cups of water. Two tablespoons of these seeds will grow into two cups of sprouts.
  • Screw on the sprouting lid to the jar. Soak the seeds for 6-8 hours at room temperature.
  • Strain off the water through the sprouting lid. Rinse the seeds with water and drain again.
  • Place the jar away from sunlight upside down at an angle for 12 hours. I use a small bowl.
  • Continue to rinse and drain the seeds with water twice a day. The whole process will take 4-7 days.
  • Most sprouts grow to an inch and they will start to turn green. Sprouts are at their best when they’re still on the relatively small side and just starting to turn green.
  • Add a lid to the top of the jar and store it in the refrigerator. Eat within a week for the best nutrients and taste.
