How To Sprout Sunflower Seeds

Over the weekend I made my first batch of sunflower sprouts!

Basically, here’s what I did:

  • I put a handful of sunflower seeds in a glass jar.
  • Filled the jar with purified water and left it in the fridge for about 24 hours.
  • I then took the seeds out and rinsed them thoroughly using a strainer.
  • Then I placed the seeds in a sprouting jar and kept it in a dark place.
  • I made sure to rinse the seeds 2-3 times a day so that they wouldn’t get all moldy.
  • After 2-3 days they started to sprout and develop small stems and leaves! And that’s pretty much it.
  • You can keep them in the fridge until ready to use. And they’ll still continue to grow!
