Mason Jar Sprouting at Home

Sprouting seeds in a mason jar is pretty straightforward. These steps show you how to sprout seeds in a glass wide-mouth mason jar with a stainless steel sprouting lid (a plastic sprouting lid can also be used).

In this example, I used 'Linda's Mix' which is a mix of small seeds and mung beans. It took about five days after the initial soak to grow this mix of leafy greens and shoots.

These instructions apply to any small seed or mix containing mostly small seeds. (ex. broccoli, alfalfa, clover etc.)

Serving Suggestions for Homegrown Sprouts

Sprouted seeds are very versatile. Delicious eaten as a snack or salad. They can be added to soups, sandwiches and wraps. Increase the nutrition of any meal by including sprouts as a topping, garnish or side.

For more information on the different ways to sprout seeds, legumes and grains, please see my book 'Home Grown Sprouts' published by Quarry Books. (Available online)
