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.

Materials Needed for Method 2:
snow pea seeds
empty glass jar
clean muslin or toe end of clean panty hose
1. Put two tablespoons of seeds into a large glass jar.
Fill it 3/4 full of water and cover with a piece of clean muslin. You can also use the toe end of a clean pair of panty hose instead of muslin. Secure with a rubber band and leave for 8-12 hours, or overnight.
2. Drain the water away through the muslin.
Rinse the seeds with cold water and drain well again. Place the jar on a warm windowsill out of direct sunlight.
