Grow some food, get some vitamins

Grow some food, get some vitamins

Did you know that sprouted seeds, like mustard and cress, are packed full of vitamins and minerals, and can provide a real health boost, especially in the winter when fresh foods is more difficult?

Delicious in sandwiches, added to salads … and so quick and easy to grow. And you can try alfalfa, radishes, beetroot (although these take a bit longer than cress).

  • Find a shallow tray, a saucer, some packaging that you’ve cleaned carefully, and line it with a couple of sheets of kitchen paper.
  • Wet the paper but make sure it’s just damp, the seeds will rot if it’s too wet.
  • Sprinkle the seeds over the surface of the paper
  • Check the seeds after a few hours, within 24 hours tiny white shoots should be showing.
  • Check the water morning and evening: don’t let it dry out, but make sure it’s not too wet.
  • In about 5-7 days your shoots should be about 4 cm high and ready to cut.
