Do you want a complete fool-proof package for growing broccoli sprouts at home? The Masontops mason jar sprouting kit includes all of the supplies you’ll need, plus it makes sprout growing easy.
1. Glass Sprouting Jars Best for Growing Sprouts:
Note: As of December 2022, the kit does NOT include mason jars -so the price is lower. You can use wide mouth jars you already have or purchase any size of wide-mouth jar you like. You can get 24 ounce wide mouth glass mason jars here.
Alternatively, you can buy 1 or 2 (or 3) of the single jar kits, which DO include a 24-oz glass mason jar.
The wide opening makes harvesting and cleaning much easier compared to standard jars. Plus, the glass is food safe and easy to wash in the dishwasher. Not to mention, you can watch your sprouts grow, unlike in stainless steel or opaque plastic trays.
2. Mesh Lids that Help Your Grow Healthier Sprouts:
Second, you get 2 specially-designed lids for the jars. These lids provide optimal air flow and drainage. As a result, you can grow healthier sprouts while minimizing problems with mold and fungus.
This unique, yet simple, mesh lid helps prevent that problem. In fact, it can also increase the number of seeds that sprout, so you get a more sprouts. =)
The BPA-free plastic lids also have 3 pegs along the outer edges, allowing you to turn your jars upside down and let the water drain out. Therefore, you can set them in a sink or over a plate or tray, knowing that they can get air and sunlight.
Alternatively, you can lay the jars on their side after you rinse them and drain the excess water. The unique lids prevent the jars from rolling, so they’ll remain in one place.
3. Get Nutrition-Packed Seeds Without Having to Buy Them Separately:
Third, this package includes 2 organic seed mixes that essentially are fresh power-packed superfoods. I think that these variety packs offer a better value because they include more nutrients and tend to be more flavorful. (Plus, the Bean Mix contains a high amount of protein too.)
- Clover Seeds
- Alfalfa Seeds
- Radish Seeds
- Mustard Seeds
Crunchy Bean Mix:
Of course, you can grow plain broccoli sprouts or any combination you like. The sprouting process works the same: soak, rinse and set in the sun for 5-6 days. See exactly how to grow broccoli sprouts here.
