Purchase sprouting seeds for vegetables such as beans, radishes, peas, alfalfa, beet and sunflower seeds. Candidates for sprouting do not include peppers, tomatoes and other plants eaten for their fruits rather than their leaves.
Purchase a wide-mouth jar such as a mason jar. Fill the lower 2 inches of the jar with warm water.
Add a tablespoon of sprouting seeds to the jar. Allow the seeds to sit in the water overnight.
Place a cheesecloth over the mouth of the jar, and drain all the water.
Add more water to the jar. Agitate the seeds by swirling the jar, and drain the water.
Repeat the rinsing process twice a day until the sprouts are a good size and have begun to turn green.
Place a paper towel in a food storage bag, and store the sprouts on the towel. Eat the sprouts within 7 days.
