How to sprout seeds
My favorite sprouts are alfalfa. Apparently you have to watch out. If the seeds are not Organic they could be (most likely are) genetically modified.
My second favorite are buckwheat, positively yummy in a salad! Also just love sunflower seeds and Daikon Radish seeds sprouted.
My favorite method of sprouting is using canning jars with a wide mouth. So simple!
I purchase plastic mesh from the art section of many stores and cut it to fit the lids. This will not work for the smaller seeds, for this you will need screening from the hardware store.
I use food grade hydrogen peroxide (not the kind for your hair in the drug store). It oxygenates the water and causes the seeds to sprout much faster, also kills off any fungi or mold. I put the seeds in the jar, add pure water, let soak at least 10 minutes or when I get around to it. Then rinse, this takes off the enzymes that stop them from sprouting. Then add fresh water and slightly less than a capful of the H202 Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide. Note: if you get any of this on your skin it will burn, rinse off your skin immediately. Then I leave them overnight and rinse in the morning. You do not need to take the lid off to do this. Set upside down in a drainer. Must drain all the water out or they will rot. Rinse several times a day. A friend of mine uses a spray bottle and a few squirts of water. A great saving if you have to purchase bottled water.
This video is really well done, very clearly shows how to sprout.
