Did you know? 

During World War II, the cultivation of kale in the U.K. was encouraged by the Dig for Victory campaign. The vegetable was easy to grow and provided important nutrients to supplement those missing from a normal diet because of rationing. 

Jar Method: 

  • SOAK 2 to 8 hours – Put 1-2 Tbsp. seed in a wide mouth jar. Cover jar with sprouting screen lid. Add water, swirl, and drain. Refill jar with water. Soak seeds 2 to 8 hours. Drain water well and invert jar at an angle in a sink or a bowl. 
  • RINSE twice a day – Rinse seeds by refilling jar with water and gently swirling. Drain well and invert jar. 
  • ENJOY! Ready to eat in 5 days – To keep fresh, refrigerate well drained sprouts. Sprouts store best when fairly dry- do not store immediately after rinsing.  

Tray Method: 

  • SOAK 2 to 8 hours – Rinse enough seed to cover the bottom of the sprouting tray. Cover seed with water for 2 to 8 hours. Drain, holding at an angle to remove excess water. Spread seed evenly on bottom of sprouting tray. Cover with lid or plastic bag. 
  • RINSE twice a day Rinse with water, using either gentle flow from tap, dipping in a sink, or spraying.  Drain thoroughly. 
  • ENJOY! Ready in 10 to 12 days – Refrigerate to keep fresh. Harvest by cutting above roots as needed. Microgreens store best when fairly dry- do not store immediately after rinsing.
