|Homemade Sprouting Lid|
In a previous post I discussed how I had troubles sprouting in a Jar. Well after further success with a cotton bag I decided to look back to the jar and figure what I did wrong.
Turns out I not only didn't drain it well but also denied it adequate air circulation.
So lets get to it, making a Sprouting Jar.
A Jar, any jar will work well, though a canning jar is well suited since it's lid already has a large hole in it. Many jars you buy at the store, jam jar etc will often take a canning ring as well.

|Tilt jar for a time drain excess water|
Sprouting with a Jar is pretty simple, just follow normal soaking, rinsing and draining instructions. After your draining efforts, lean the upside down jar up against something on an angle so the lid isn't sitting flat. This allows excess moisture to drip out but also keeps the seeds open to the air. After a while you can then turn the jar back around and set it out of the way, till your next round of rinse and drain.
