Sprouting Seeds are a simple way to produce nutritious vegetables all the year round. Like beansprouts, there are other seeds which can be raised much in the same way to give different flavours. They can be grown in the same way as cress (on moist tissue or saucers) but with sprouting seeds, the whole seedling is eaten. Another way to grow them is in a glass jar. Soak the seeds overnight in tepid water after washing them, drain them and put them in a clean jar, covering with some old tights or a muslin. Fill the jar with water and pour off leaving nicely moist seeds, propping the solid end up so any excess water drains off, lay the jar on its side and keep in a warm place and repeat the wetting and draining twice a day.
