Growing sprouts in a jar

It is easy.
Place the seeds in the jar. Even if you have a large jar, use only a few tablespoons of seeds then rinse them, drain and refill with fresh water. Largely cover the seeds and place the lid or the cloth on it. Let soak overnight.

Rinse (refill and drain the jar) with cool water thoroughly three times a day the next three days. Invert jar and prop at angle in sink or bowl.

Some seeds have hulls and those will be thrown off during the sprouting. Regular lids are conceived to let the hulls go with water when you rinse. If you use a cloth you will have to place the sprouts in a bowl with water. Then with your hand remove everything that is floating, and place the sprouts back in the jar.

After a few days your seeds are ready to eat. Rinse them before placing them on your plate. It is better to not store them, but if you have to, place them in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. They will not keep long.
