Sprouting directions 

Soak 4 to 8 hours – Put 1-2 Tbsp. seed in a wide mouth jar. Cover jar with sprouting lid. Rinse seed - add water, swirl, and drain. Refill jar with water. Soak seeds 4 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.  

 

Info: Sprouted seeds have between 4 to 40 times more nutrients than their mature counterparts. (1)
