Emma Holister wrote a thorough guide to sprouting and gave me permission to post it here, a few years ago. When I moved this website from one webhost to another, somehow I lost all the pictures. So if you go to
you can see the full article.
I’ve been sprouting for many years, off and on, and I picked up a few tips from Emma. I’m not as well-organized or tidy as she must be to have created this article. I use canning jars with their rings, and cut inserts to the jars from window screening. Also, in our house, the sunflower seed sprouts usually get eaten within 24 hours of starting the sprout process! They are so much more yummy that way than just raw, I think.
