a large jam jar, some broccoli seeds - I buy mine from the Diggers Club in the Botanical Gardens, fresh water and a piece of cheesecloth or muslin
1. rinse the seeds well, place in the jar and cover with a few centimetres of cooled, boiled water. cover with cheesecloth, secure with a rubber band and leave overnight in a dark warm place - I keep mine in the pantry.
2. Rinse seeds the next day with fresh water. Drain well or the seeds will rot. Return to the dark. Do this twice a day until seeds start to sprout. Tilt your jar to 45 deg angle to allow the sprouts to grow up the jar.
3. place them on a sunny windowsill for a few hours to get an energy boost. Eat or store in an airtight container in the fridge. Sprouts will keep in the fridge for 2 - 3 days.
