Radish is a fast growing plant and if you were to examine it after only a week’s time, you would already notice the green leaves starting. Even at this early stage, Radish sprouts provide the full flavor of the fully grown adult vegetables. They have a powerful taste, with a mild radish tang.
Radish is a source of protein, vitamins A, B6, and C, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and zinc. Contains more protein than lettuce and spinach.
Soak for 4 to 6 hours – Place 1 - 2 tbsp of seeds in a wide mouth jar. Cover with screen and secure with rubber band. Add water, swirl, and drain. Add 1 cup cool water and soak for 4 - 6 hours. Drain well.
Rinse 2 times a day – refill jar with cool water, swirl, and drain. Invert jar and prop at an angle in a sink or bowl.
Enjoy! Ready to eat in 4 to 5 days – To keep fresh, refrigerate well drained sprouts. Sprouts store best when fairly dry- do not store immediately after rinsing.
1 tbsp (approximately .38 oz) of dry seeds yields 3-4 cups of sprouts.
Storage: If you'd like to extend the germination life of your seeds, store them in the fridge. If you store your seeds in the freezer in a sealed freezer bag, they'll last even longer!
