You can order a sprouter, or use a canning jar with a piece of screen on top in place of a lid. If you use a canning jar, just make sure the screen is tightened down with a canning ring. With the jar, you must must must ensure you drain the sprouts well.
I ordered my Easysprout and seeds from The Sprout people. http://www.sproutpeople.com/
They offer a great selection of sprout products and seeds.
1. Rinse your seeds until the water runs clear.
2. Soak seeds in your jar or sprouter for 12 hours
3. Drain well--very well and let sit out of sunlight
Day 2-rinsed 2 times
4. Rinse every 8-12 hours and drain well for the next 4-6 days
That is it. So easy! If you want to get the hulls off, just soak sprouts in a bowl full of water. Break up mass of sprouts and skim hulls off of top. Drain and let dry before putting into fridge. Make sure they are very dry! There you have it--a fresh nutritious green sprout in just 4-6 days.
Hope you are inspired to try this easy way of providing fresh greens for your family!
