Wash the seeds, cover in clean water and leave to soak overnight. Drain the seeds and place in a clean 1 quart jar. Cover with cheesecloth and secure with a rubber band. Leave the jar on its side, in a dark place out of the sunlight. Twice a day remove sprouts, rinse in water, drain and return to the jar. Change the cheesecloth daily or purchase a sprout jar cover. In about 4 days, the sprouts should be 2 inches long and should be ready to eat.
