Replace The Lid With A Mesh For Easy Seed Rinsing

The following is a sprouting chart we compiled of the most common seeds used for sprouting and some unconventional ones.

When looking at this sprouting chart, look at the method recommended first and the amount to use.  That way you can prepare yourself by having the right materials.  For example, if you want to sprout broccoli, it is recommended that you use a tray and use about 2-3 tablespoons of seeds.  This means that you have to have a tray to sprout and enough broccoli seeds to sprout.  If not, go out and buy the materials before you begin.

When soaking your seeds, set the seeds aside in a bowl or a jar that is large enough for the seeds to expand without problems.  This especially holds true for beans that can easily double in size.  We recommend using a jar, as it is easier to rinse in if you have a fine mesh filter at the top.  If you don’t you can easily create one by purchasing a mesh screen and using a few rubber bands to secure it at the top.

All seeds should be soaked overnight unless stated otherwise.

If you are sprouting with a tray make sure you distribute the seeds evenly.  If sprouting with a bag, soak the seeds overnight, pour the soaked seeds into a pre-moistened sprout bag, rinse and hang.

You should always rinse your sprouts on a daily basis until the water turns clear.

This sprouting chart is by no means comprehensive, if you would like to see a sprout added on to here please contact us!
