Sprouts are very young plants, one stage up from a seed & a seed is a storehouse of energy containing all the nutrients needed for a plant to grow. When a seed starts to sprout the nutrients contained in it become available. Some seeds (like alfalfa) contain all the essential amino acids to make it a complete protein. Here’s how to sprout! 

  1. Rinse 1.5 tablespoons of alfalfa seeds
  2. Soak seeds overnight in cold water
  3. Drain and place in a jam jar, spreading out seeds
  4. Make jay cloth lid and keep it on with an elastic band
  5. Place the jamjar in a well-lit spot avoiding direct sunlight
  6. Twice daily, pour water over and drain away.
  7. Alfalfa sprouts will be ready in between 3 – 8 days
