I am sprouting Alfalfa seeds for salads and sandwiches and I put them to soak tonight after work. I've had my sprouting jar for some time and just never seemed to get around to using it.
Since I am in need of interesting recipes and additions to my vegan menu I thought now was the time to dive in!
So, I will add to this post with some pictures of the little buggers as they start to sprout, the process, etc.
For right now they are soaking. I am thinking five hours should do it because they are tiny little seeds. Then I will need to rinse them at least twice a day, baby them and hope they grow. Then I get to eat them. LOL.
UPDATE - these were amazing! And lasted much, much longer than the store bought variety. Super easy and if you love sprouts I would definitely just grow them yourself.
I was going to post some pictures of the process but when I decided to grow them I looked up Devin Hunter's DIY video and he explains it so much better with loads of instruction and a really nice daily illustration of how they are grown and harvested so I am posting the link here:
