How to make your Wheatgrass
Rinse wheat berries and place in quart size sprouting jar. Fill the jar with water and cover with a sprouting screen. If you are making your sprouting jar, cover the opening with cheesecloth and a rubber band.
Soak at least 6 hours or overnight. Drain off all water.
Invert jar in a colander at an angle so berries will drain and air is allowed to circulate. After 8-12 hours of draining - rinse and drain again.
Repeat rinsing and draining 2-3 times daily.
When tiny sprouts begin to form in 2-3 days, completely drain.
Place soil in tray.
Cover top of soil with sprouted wheat berries (don’t worry about how they lay on soil, they will correct themselves). Place just enough soil on top of the sprouted berries to adequately cover. Water.
Continue to water every other day.
Your wheatgrass should be ready to use in about 5-6 days. Cut and use.
It will keep growing and be ready to use about every other day.
