Alfalfa is the perfect
seed for sprouting. This auction is for 4000 seeds, or about a Tablespoon of seeds. This is enough to do 6 batches of sprouts.
1/2 tsp of seeds in a small clear jar about 1 cup size. Put in 1/4 cup of water. Stretch an old piece of nylon over the top
of the jar and secure with a strong rubber band. Swirl around the water in the jar to rinse the seeds and then let the water
Fill jar about 1/2 full and soak 4-8 hours. Rinse. Then twice a day, put water in the jar and rinse.
Leave the jar at an angle so the water can drain out into a bowl between rinsings.
In just a few days, you will
see sprouts. You can let them get up to 1.5" long. Great on sandwiches, in salads, and very nutritious! If you eat a lot of
sprouts, you can do larger batches, or have multiple jars going at the same time.
Seeds may be dusted with a non-chemical
bacteria that is not harmful, but is designed to enhance germination by attracting oxygen to the germination process.
