NOW Real Food Sprouting Jar with Stainless Steel Screen
Description & Features
Calling all DIY aficionados with a green thumb or anyone looking to start. This simple jar will allow you to start growing your own sprouts, no garden required. One of the best ways to enjoy health and nutritious green foods is to sprout your own. NOW offers this specially-designed, inert and easy-to-clean, glass, sprouting jar and other sprouting accessories to accompany our sproutable seeds, making it even easier for you to enjoy real, healthy foods. Its convenient size allows growth to happen no matter where you are, whether at home or at the office.
- Place two tablespoons of sprouting seeds or 1/2 cup of legumes/grains in a sprouting jar with three times as much water as seeds. Soak overnight. For many small seeds, five hours of soaking is sufficient.
- Drain the water from the jar. Rinse seeds in fresh, lukewarm water and drain again. For well drained seeds/sprouts, lay jar at an angle in a warm (70° F), dark place.
- Rinse and drain seeds twice a day. In hot and dry weather, you may need to rinse the seeds three times a day. In very humid weather, the seeds should be kept in a dry place. Turn jar over gently. Overturning the jar rapidly will cause shifting in the sprouting seeds. This can break the tender shoots and kill the sprout. This breakage causes the sprout to spoil. Sprouts should be ready to eat in 3-5 days, depending on the seed used. Put in sunlight during the last day to add chlorophyll.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Alex from Very disappointed by the lid of this jar. By my second use of the jar, the plastic inner lining of the lid (that keeps the mesh screen in place) had trapped moisture. Brown and black mold appeared and I could not remove the plastic lining to clean it. I don't trust that I can use the lid again safely, a shame as I bought two.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stacey from Easy way to grow sprouts! I am loving this jar for sprouting the NOW foods broccoli sprouts! Great time to have them growing for that extra nutrient boost too! The first time the jar ended up too full so I am trying a smaller amount this time. It sounds daunting at first, but you find it’s easy to rinse them in the morning upon waking up, turn canister over in dish rack to drain, till excess water off and cover to let sit on side! Four days to sprouts! Must have filtered water tho! Rushed and rinsed with tap and the next day I could smell the damage, unique flavour also, my kids are loving them!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sprouts from Well designed jar for sprouting. Just the right size and good quality glass for sprouting. The screened lid looks solid and will last through several washes and uses.
