A while back, I attended a Lost River Market & Deli workshop on growing sprouts and came away so inspired that I purchased some sprout seeds, a sprouting jar with "screen top" lids and a recipe booklet. Over the winter, I've grown my own sprouts to put on sandwiches, soups and salads. They are so fresh tasting and crunchy! I love the fact that they are nutritional powerhouses too. As I grew my own sprouts, I was thinking what a great project for youngsters to do. It's easy and it's fun watching the seeds turn into sprouts. How proud they would be to serve what they grew themselves to their family. Here are directions for growing Radish Sprouts which are the easiest to grow and will give you confidence to grow other sprouts.
You will need 2 Tablespoons Radish Sprout Seeds, 1 large Mason jar, sprouting lids or a piece of cheesecloth and a rubber band, water, and a towel.
