Winter Sprouts

I know it is winter, but I want to garden NOW.  There is a little bit of stuff out there including onions, garlic, cabbages and Brussels sprouts, but I want more.  My boss gave me a homemade seed sprouting set up for my birthday .  This includes a cool old Mason jar, the collar to the  Mason jar and a square of tulle.  She shared plain radish seeds and a salad mix of broccoli, radish and alfalfa seeds.  We have already started and finished on "crop" of radish sprouts and are now three days into another batch.  Since the middle Manimal (sorry they grew out of monkeyhood) will not stay out of them, I  started another jar this afternoon.     So now I have both plan radish sprouts and the salad mix growing in my cupboard.  Sweet right, gardening indoors and in the dark.

Here are the steps.  It is beyond easy.  Get a clean canning jar with a collar and a piece of tulle.  If you can't find a canning jar a regular glass jar will work just use a rubber band instead of the collar.  Find some seeds to sprout.  We bought ours at a local natural food market.  I also have seeds I've saved from the garden including broccoli, collards and Chinese greens that I will sprout soon.  Put about a tablespoon or so of seeds in the bottom of the jar and let them soak in a little water for about an hour.  Cover the top of the jar with the tulle and secure it with the canning collar a sturdy rubber band.  Drain off the water pretty well and put the jar in a cool dark place like a cupboard.  Wait.  In a day they will be germinating.  In about four days you can eat them, although they will be a little crunchy, which I like.  In five to six days they are ready to go.  Don't save them for special, you want to eat them young and fresh.  .

  1. I'm doing that too - it's great to be doing something gardeny right in the middle of winter isn't it? :)

    You can also sprout them in the light - you get a slightly different flavour.

  2. That's true. My Boss went out of town an her husband left her's out in the light. Still good just tasted more of grass.

  7. Aaagghhh, you're making me feel guilty, Aunt Debbi! I have lots of sprouting setups, all of which work just as easily, and lots of packets of seeds for sprouting. We love sprouts. So am I sprouting my own? Noooo. Am I buying sprouts that go bad before we can use them all, since OFB will only tolerate so many in salads and it's not yet warm enough for sandwiches every day for lunch? Guess. Shame on me!!! One question, though: You don't mention rinsing them after the initial soaking. I was always told to rinse them once or twice a day. So, do you or don't you? Happy spring, Silence
