Sprouting: How to sprout at home with Kefirko

Kefirko jar for sprouting

Sprouting, it seems like everyone is doing it - but with all the benefits it provides you can see why. Sprouting seeds (like cress, linseed, alfalfa, arugula etc.) are not only easy to grow, they also offer a huge amount of the nutrients that your body needs.

Why sprout at home?

It may be the foody trend of the season, but fresh sprouting seeds have been incorporated into Chinese medicine for thousands of years. Today, they can be found on the shelves of healthfood stores and supermarkets around the world. Sprouting and seed swapping communities have now become a thing, simply because they are easy, cheap, and a tasty vegetable that anyone can grow at home. What's more, they are easy to digest and provide a sucker punch of nutrient and vitamin goodness!

'It's clear that everyone has gone crazy over sprouting...but with good reason!'

How beneficial are sprouting seeds?

Sprouting seeds grow into nutrition packed young plants once exposed to the right temperature and moisture. Germinating or sprouting is the process needed to grow those seeds into small shoots. You can then add your shoots to salads, sandwiches or snacks. The colour, size, flavour and type of sprouts you get is all based on the seeds you choose. Sprouts are among the most nutritious foods you can get.  Imagine what a tiny seed would need to grow a whole plant - a whole lot of strength and nutrition, right? Well, you are ingesting all off that goodness when you eat sprouts. This also includes fiber, enzymes and vitamins too. In short, when it comes to nutrition, it really doesn't get much better than sprouting seeds.

Is sprouting really that easy?

...It is with a Kefirko jar. In fact, sprouting takes just a few days from jar to plate. First you have to soak the seeds in water for at least 8 hrs for up to 24 hrs. Then depending on the seeds, sprouting can take 4-6 days until you have something ready to add to your meals and snacks.
