How to grow sprouts

Learning how to grow sprouts in a mason jar on your kitchen counter top is so simple. Sprouts can be used to give your chickens a treat in winter or feed your family. By growing sprouts you are helping them become a more alkaline food.  When the seed sprouts it is like eating a plant or vegetable so therefore more alkalizing which brings down the acid level in the body.
Having a high level of acid in the body is when unhealthy ailments happen in the body.

Sprouted seeds are great on a salad or in a stir fry.
