How to Sprout Seeds
Sprouts are seeds that have just begun to germinate, so you can grow them in only a few days. They're tasty and nutty and crunchy and very good for you, so nibble them by the handful or sprinkle them on salads and sandwiches.

For this example, we've used snow peas, one of many edible sprouting seeds. There are two main ways to germinate seeds quickly. Store your seeds in the refrigerator so they don't become moldy, and make sure to eat them within five days. This project will take six days to complete.
Materials Needed for Method 1:
snow pea seeds
1. Place a few sheets of paper towels onto a shallow tray.
Soak paper towels in water. Spread your seeds over the damp surface and place the tray in a warm place — like in front of a sunny window.
2. Keep the paper towel moist at all times.
Watch the seeds germinate and taste them after a few days.
