This is something I remember doing when I was little, but could not remember how it was done. I have a vague memory of a jar and pouring water out, but that was about it. So after doing some Googling, I'm now ready to give it a try. Most of the information below is from this helpful link. There are many sprouting resources out there. I found most of them very informative, but overwhelming. So I am going to try and keep it as simple as I can.
Step 1: Gather Supplies - 1 quart jar, cheesecloth or screen for lid, sprouting beans or seeds, (I used a sprouting mix), water, and spoon.
Step 2: Fill jar 1/2 full with water.
Step 3: Add 2 Tablespoons of Seeds or Beans.
Step 4: Put the lid on the jar.
Step 5: Set the jar out of direct sunlight and leave for 8 hours.
This is happening in real time here folks, so these seed are sitting in my cupboard right now, and I will update the tutorial as it happens. Hopefully I can actually grow something.
To be continued...
