I have one of those simple little jar sprouters, and i make my own fresh sprouts. My favorite is fenugreek sprouts, which are much like alfalfa sprouts, but they are more robust, and have a spicier flavor, whereas (to me anyway) the alfalfa sprouts seem wimpier. Kind of like the difference between a watery iceberg lettuce and a rich green leaf of Romaine. Sprouts are so easy to make, only take a few days to grow, and have about 30 times the nourishment for you that just eating the unsprouted seeds would have. My sprouter is just an oversized quart jar, and a plastic ring lid with a fine screen in it. I put in a couple tablespoons of the seeds, add warmish water, and leave it to soak over night. the next morning the water will be slightly colored, and has nutrients in it. I use that to water one of my houseplants. After that, you just rinse the sprouts in fresh water twice a day, and let them grow. I put mine in the kitchen windowsill where they get plenty of sun and turn a beautiful shade of green. A quick rinse in the colander will wash off any seeds husks, and they are ready to be eaten and stored in the refrigerator. Two tablespoons of fenugreek seeds makes over a quart of tightly packed fresh sprouts. If you enjoy sprouts, growing your own is a great way to have fresh ones. Here is a picture of a sprouter similar to mine (mine is just an older version).
