I've spent so much money buying alfalfa sprouts from the grocery stores without realizing how easy it is to grow them in a jar at home in a matter of days! Growing sprouts and microgreens at home are just as easy! All you need is alfalfa or radish sprouting seeds, glass mason jars, a rubber band and a cheesecloth!





  1. Place the alfalfa sprouting seeds in a large mason jar, a pinch of sea salt and cover with 250ml of water.
  2. Cover the glass jar with a piece of cheesecloth and secure it with an elastic band or use a wide mouth mason jar sprouting lid. Let soak overnight on the countertop.


Every morning and night for about 4 to 5 days

  1. Drain the water thoroughly out of the mason jar directly thru the cheesecloth or sprouting lid.
  2. Add about 500ml of fresh water into the jar again and swirl it around.
  3. Tilt the mason jar and drain the water out as much as possible.
  4. Leave the mason jar on its side and spread the seeds out as much as possible on the insider surface of the jar.
  5. Repeat this process every morning and night for the next 4 to 5 days until the sprouts are around 5cm in length.


  • Remove the sprouts from the jar and rise thoroughly.
  • Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator up to 4 days.



  • sea salt will help to prevent harmful bacteria from growing on the sprouts
