Looking for a quick way to grow something healthy without needing a lot of space? Even if you don’t have a garden, these sprouts are a great project.

                 

Things you need:

  • Clean sterilised jars (you don’t need the lid)
  • Muslin fabric
  • Rubber bands
  • Sprout seeds (you could try alfalfa, mustard, mung beans, chickpeas, peas or even radish and broccoli seeds)
  • Water
  • Bucket/sink

Directions

 

  • Put a tablespoon of seeds in your jar. Add a small amount of water to cover the seeds, and top with a small piece of muslin and a rubber band. Ensure the muslin is wet. Shake jar gently and leave for 4-6 hours in a light spot. If you have a lot of bigger seeds, a tray will also work
  • Fill your jar with a small amount of water and drain by tipping upside down and letting it leak through the muslin into a bucket. Shake the seeds gently and lie the jar on it’s side. Repeat this process 2-3 times a day, ensuring that the muslin is always wet and the seeds are damp.
  • Within 1-3 days your seeds will start to sprout. After a day:

I&#8217;ve had this batch for over a week and they are still fresh and not slimy or mouldy.

<span style="color: #212121; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 21px;">Another option is when the bigger seeds have sprouts (such as peas) you can plant them in a shallow soil and shoots will grow which can be snipped off and served in salads. These microgreens are considered highly nutritious and a great addition to many veggie dishes.
