Growing Alfalfa Sprouts
I grew alfalfa sprouts years ago when we were first married and for some reason stopped. They are so easy to grow and when I saw the seeds at our local plant nursery (Bakers!) I picked up a package of seeds and decided to give it another go. :)
All you need is:
cheese cloth or a piece of panty hose
and a rubber band
Day 1: you put seeds in jar (enough to cover the bottom)
Cover with water. Put in dark cool place and let sit overnight
Day 2: Dump out water.
Rinse 3 times a day for the next 3 days
Keep in dark place.
Day 4: Rinse one last time and sit jar in sunlight.
This will make the sprouts turn green (sorry for really bad photo :()
After a day or two they will be ready to eat!
