Pour about two cups of non-chlorinated water through the sprout screen. Once drained very well place in a bowl that will allow the jar to lay upside down at a slight angle. Every day your sprouts will grow a bit more until they have filled your entire quart jar and started to turn green. When you are satisfied with the length (and greenness) of your sprouts you are ready to store them in the refrigerator. Keeping them dry will stop their growth and slow down spoilage.

When you go to purchase seeds make sure that they are marked “sprouting” seeds and get them from a source you trust. Different seeds have different flavors once sprouted – radish sprouts will be spicy and fenugreek will faintly taste of maple syrup. Put the sprouting screen in place and screw on the canning ring.
