|12 hours in. They're growing!!!|

Oh! If you don't want to buy the little plastic lid, you can use a double layer of cheesecloth under a Mason jar ring. :)
Cassandra asked me what the nutritional value was of sprouts. I had no idea because I don't usually care when the item is a salad ingredient. But I thought I'd look it up and let you know. So, basically, not a lot. 5% of the USDA daily allowance of Vitamin C, some Vitamin A, a little Calcium and Iron. However, I did find this amazing nutritional site, Self Nutrition Data.
Sprout it!! (maybe that's the next Portlandia skit).
