1. Fold a paper towel in half. Mist the towel with water so that it is damp but not dripping, and place it in a shallow container or tray.
2. Sprinkle a generous layer of cress seeds evenly over the paper towel. Press them gently to ensure all seeds are touching the wet towel.
3. Cover the tray with a second paper towel to create a dark environment. Leave the covering on the tray until the seeds sprout, usually in one to two days. Alternatively, place the tray in a dark room for a day or two.
4. Move the uncovered tray into bright sunlight. Mist the plants lightly if the paper towel becomes dry. However, don't soak the paper towel, because too much moisture may cause the seedlings to rot.
5. Harvest the seedlings when the cress is about 2 inches tall -- usually in about 10 to 14 days. To harvest the seedlings, snip them with clean scissors.
6. Place the cress in a strainer and rinse it under cool water. Shake off the excess water. If not eating the sprouts immediately, place the cress in an airtight container and store it in the refrigerator. Use the cress within one to two days.
