Growing and eating sprouting seeds has become more than a health food fad. Freshly grown
sprouts are now widely used as a unique way of creating different food dishes that vary in taste and
texture, and provide healthful nutrition. Sprouts vary in texture and taste depending on the
vegetable variety. Some are spicy (radish), some are hardy for use in oriental food (adzuki bean), and
other are more delicate (alfalfa) for use in salads and sandwiches to add moistness and texture.
Sprouts may be grown
in inexpensive wide-mouth glass jars, on moist sponges, on blotter paper, or in plastic trays
or we recommend our 'Kitchen Garden' Deluxe Two Tray Seed Sprouter.

Sprouts -- How to Grow
- Soak your sprouting seeds with water for about 8 hours.
- Prepare your 'Kitchen Garden' sprouter container by gently washing the container and lid
with soapy water, then rinse.
- Spread a thin layer of seeds evenly on the bottom of plastic sprouting
container. See reference chart for quantity of seed per variety recommended
for each of your sprouter trays. A light rinse will help spread seeds evenly.
Stack trays and place smaller drip tray under the bottom sprouter to catch
drips. Cover sprouter with lid and place on kitchen counter out of
- Moisten your seeds by rinsing them at least 2-3 times a day. The lid should remain on as much as possible to facilitate keeping the
seeds moist. The seeds should stay moist not soggy. It will take 3-7 days for sprouts to mature,
depending on the seed variety and temperature. As seeds sprout, taste test to determine the
stage that you like them.
- Many sprouts store from days to weeks when placed in plastic bags and
stored in the refrigerator. Your 'Kitchen Garden' sprouter can also be used
for storing your sprouts. Rinse sprouts again with water. Allow them to drain
dry, or shake off excess moisture and place sprouting trays including drip
tray a lid into the refrigerator. Clean the sprouter trays, drip tray and lid
thoroughly between batches.
Generally, sprouts can be stored in a refrigerator for 1-2 weeks with frequent water rinses.
Health Safety Note
Sprouts are fresh when their roots are moist and white or cream in color and the sprout itself is
crisp. Avoid any sprouts with yellowing or graying roots or any sign of decay. Give the sprouts the
sniff test -- fresh sprouts have a clean, fresh aroma. Keep sprouts refrigerated and use them
within a few days. Finally, wash hands with warm, soapy water before and after handling all foods.
