Why and how to germinate seeds?
Sprouts are simply plants in the early growth phase that contain much more nutrients than a fully developed plant. During sprouting, enzymes are also released that facilitate the body's absorption of the vitamins and minerals contained in the sprouts. To grow sprouts at home, just buy a plastic sprouter or prepare a 1-liter glass jar, gauze and a rubber band. Put about 5 tablespoons of any seeds into the jar and fill them with water to about half the height of the jar. Soak the seeds in this way preferably overnight. In the morning, put gauze over the opening of the jar and secure it with a rubber band. Pour out all the water and add fresh water, then pour it out again. Place the jar with soaked seeds preferably at such an angle that the rest of the water flows freely out of the jar. This way you will avoid mold formation. Rinse the seeds with clean water 2 times a day. After 3-5 days you will be able to use your own harvest of sprouts.
