Sprouting SeedsThere is hardly a better way of getting fresh vegetables in winter, simple, cheap, tasty and full of vitamins and minerals. Soak a few tablespoons of seeds over night in a roomy glass jar. Put a mosquito net or whatever is suitable over the top and fasten it with a strong rubber-band and then rinse the seeds 2-3 times a day in cold water. Put the jar in a leaning position upside down in the plate rack or in a bowl and let the water run off. Put a towel over the jar or put it in a dark place. Most seeds germinate better and are more nourishing if allowed to sprout in the dark, but when the seeds have sprouted they should have light, preferably a window, to create chlorophyll and become green.
Keep the sprouts in the refrigerator and rinse them occasionally and they will keep fresh for a week.
There are also sprouting apparatuses of several levels for sale. They are easy to use and practical.
The seeds we offer for sale have been tested and are free of E. Coli bacteria 0157 and Salmonella. These bacteria often turn up in sprouts and can cause serious diseases.
