Growing Alfalfa Sprouts
I’m pretty sure this is the easiest thing that I’ve ever grown. Alfalfa are simple reliable little seeds, growing in any conditions in my experience. The end result is a cheap, tasty fresh green mess to add to your salads & sandwhiches. You should be able to get the seeds from your local healthfood store.
How to Grow Alfalfa Sprouts:
what you’ll need:
- large sized jar
- alfalfa seeds
- square of chux (fabric with largish holes that will drain well without letting out the seeds)
- elastic band
Place 2 tsp of alfalfa seeds in the jar and half fill with water. Leave over night.
Next day, drain off the liquid and leave the jar on its side for 24 hours. Each morning, fill the jar with water, and then drain again. The alfalfa should be ready to eat in 5-6 days time.
Happy Growing & Happy Eating, Leah
