Sprouts are a great superfood to have on hand for sandwiches, wraps and stir-fries. And you can grow fresh sprouts in jars very easily on your kitchen counter.
Sprouts are just the immature plants, grown not in soil, but essentially in air with a bit of moisture.
They can be grown from many different kinds of seeds, but greens, brassicas and legumes are the most popular. Broccoli, mung beans, mustards and arugula to name a few.
Growing sprouts in jars is something anyone can do, even if you lack outdoor space to grow plants in soil. And the benefit of growing your own is that they are fresher and tastier.
Sprouts you buy at the grocery store often have been packaged days if not weeks before and have lost some of their nutritional value as well as taste.
Here is a short video showing you exactly how you can start a jar of sprouts on your counter today with just a few simply supplies.
I hope this inspires you to give it a try yourself!
