Have you ever bought a pack of sprouts from the supermarket, only to use a small portion before they all went slimy and ended up in the bin? I used to have the same problem until I discovered the ease of growing my own sprouts in jars. But I found there was a lack of options available especially if you wanted to keep the sprouts in the dark like mung beans which prefer the dark at the end of their growing cycle to grow long and sweeter. So, I decided to design a sprouting set that looks attractive and allows you keep the jars out on the bench while the sprouts do their thing. The spout set comes with two slide-on-sleeve so the sprouts that like a bit of darkness can, while remaining on the bench while they finish their growing.
Now, my family and I enjoy yummy fresh sprouts all the time.
Not only are sprouts a cheap and easy way to pack a lot of nutrients into your meals, but they also take less than a week to grow from the moment you pour the seeds into the jar. The toughest decision you'll need to make is which type of sprout you want to try first. Personally, I love blended sprout mixes for the flavour, but alfalfa or good old mung beans are just as great! mung beans and radishes are the fastest to grow, taking just three days before they're ready to eat, while less commonly sprouted seeds like broccoli, fenugreek, and amaranth can take considerably longer.
Starting your own sprouts in our sprouting jars is incredibly easy. Simply add around 2 tablespoons of seeds into the sprout jar and fill it with water. Let it soak for eight hours or overnight. Then drain off the water, rinse the seeds with more cold water, and drain again. Place the jar in a warm spot to start the germination process, and rinse and drain it twice daily, once in the morning and again at night. Soon enough, your sprouts will be big enough to eat. Once they're ready, remove the sprouts from the jar and keep them in an airtight container in the vegetable bin or compartment of your fridge for up to a week.
One thing to keep in mind when sprouting is to avoid direct sunlight, as the jar can act like a magnifying glass and dry out your sprouts really fast With a Grace and August Sprouting Set, you can grow your own healthy sprouts with ease and enjoy them as part of your daily meals.
