Broccoli sprouts are an awesome healthy alternative to lettuce on sandwiches or added to shakes. However, they can be expensive when you buy them at the store. That’s why you want to grow them yourself.
In this video, you’ll see another video on how to grow your own sprouts, including alfalfa, clover, radish and broccoli sprouts. The technique involves using a simple and inexpensive mason jar – where you grow a variety of plants together in one jar.
If you have a few jars, this can be a good way to start multiple batches at different times so that you always have fresh sprouts ready-to-eat without having too many at once. Just label them with the planting date, so you know which jar is which.
Something that the video points out is that sprouts can take longer to grow in the wintertime when there is less light and the temperature is cooler (ie. 5 days vs 3 days). She also explains how to sterilize your jars so that you don’t have to worry about mold and other gross stuff appearing in your sprouts.
