Here are the steps:
Step 1: Soak 1/2 cup beans (these are mung beans) or 2 Tablespoon of seeds in a jar overnight, or at least 6 hours.
Step 2: Rinse the beans off by running water over them, gently swirling the beans in the water, and then pouring the water out through the sprouting cover.
Step 3: Wrap the jar with a towel, lay horizontal, and put it in a warm place that you will remember to check each day. I put mine behind my coffee maker because it is warm there and when I pour my cup of coffee every morning I see it.
Step 4: Each day fill the jar with cool water, gently swirl the beans around in the water, pour off all excess water through the lid, re-wrap, and return to your warm spot.
After about 3 days you will have completed sprouts. Here is a picture of the mung bean sprouts and also a picture of some broccoli seeds I sprouted.
