After 5 days in the kitchen window (and yes, it’s snowing again here), the sprouts are ready for harvest!
Although it’s Day 6, they’ve technically been sprouting for five days because I started taking photographs right after starting the seeds.
After rinsing and draining the sprouts one last time, I measured them:
Two teaspoons of seeds grew to more than a cup of sprouts, about the equivalent of the retail package I found for $3.99. There are 16 teaspoons of seeds in the 4-ounce bag (my cost: $2.49), so each batch of sprouts costs about 31 cents – or about 8 percent of retail price!
The sprouts are fresh, crunchy and so, so good. We’ll be using them in a recipe next; stay tuned!
