Mary Does Sprouts
We have been growing all kinds of sprouts for over 30 years. We have done it many different ways and trying all kinds of kits but we always come back to the simple and cheapest way. Using canning jars. Let show you how we do it.
Here is a video on how we do it.
Sprouts are very young plants. They are grown for about a week, and eaten while they still have many of the nutritional reserves for growth. They have been called a miracle food and nature’s most perfect food.
Sprouts are very inexpensive (even when organic), always fresh (they grow until you chew them) and have the potential to help solve hunger and malnutrition problems in our communities and in developing countries. The are rich in nutrients, affordable, and easy to transport before sprouting. Sprouts are precious in winter, whenthe quality of fresh fruits and vegetables is declining as their price increases.
