DIY: Grow Sprouts in Your Kitchen
Sprouts are an essential part of our state's namesake sandwich, and there might be nothing more satisfying than slices of toasted whole grain bread stuffed with creamy avocado and cool, crunchy alfalfa sprouts. Sprouts provide all kinds of healthy enzymes and nutrients, and there is no reason to buy them at the market when they are so easy to grow at home in just a few days. Grow classic alfalfa, spicy radish, nutty sunflower, or hearty mung bean. The options are endless.
What you need:
Organic Sprouting Seeds (Make sure that they are marked “sprouting” seeds and get them from a source you trust, like City Farmers Nursery
a quart-sized canning jar
cheesecloth (and something to secure it over the mouth of the jar) or a wide-mouth canning ring and a sprouting screen or a sprouting lid, which you can find on Amazon
