How to Sprout Broccoli, Sprouting - Di Cicco seeds

How to Sprout Broccoli, Sprouting - Di Cicco seeds

Add 2 tablespoons of broccoli sprouting seeds to a wide mouthed quart jar.

Cover with a few inches of filtered water and cap with the sprouting lid.

Store in a warm, dark place overnight.

I use my pantry for this.

The next morning, drain the liquid off and rinse with fresh water. Be sure to drain all the water off.

Repeat this 3-4 times a day. Continue to store your seeds in a warm, dark place. After a few days, the seeds will start to break open and grow. The biology major in me is absolutely enamored with this process!

Eventually, the sprouts will be an inch or so long and have yellow leaves. Now you can move the sprouts out into the sunlight.

Continue to rinse them 3-4 times a day until the leaves are dark green. Now they are ready to eat!

This whole process will take about a week. Patience, patience, patience!

Once they are ready, replace the sprouting lid with a standard Mason jar lid and store inthe refrigerator.

Serve on top of salads, stirred into soups, or however strikes your fancy.

DID YOU KNOW?  Broccoli sprouts are 10x – 100 x higher in some cancer fighting compounds than the actual mature vegetable!
