Fresh crunchy sprouts make a wonderful addition to any salad or sandwich and they are fun and easy to grow. Great project for kids too! I recently started growing my own onboard our boat Summer Wind. It takes very little space or effort! You can buy sprouting kits (which includes a lid with screens), but I didn't have one on board so used a large wide-mouth canning jar and cheese cloth! I nylon stocking can also be used to cover the jar. Do not use a regular sized canning lid because it will be difficult to remove the sprouts from the jar. Alfalfa sprouts, mung beans and sunflower sprouts are the most popular. I've even used lentil beans and they were great! You can buy seeds at a health food store. Never use seeds from a garden shop or catalog because they are treated with a fungicide.
