  • Fresh nutty flavour and crisp texture
  • Quick growing


Sprouts have a fresh nutty flavour and crisp texture that is ideal for salads and sandwiches.  Very nutritious.  Quick growing.

More info: Alfalfa is also known as Lucerne, it is a flowering perrenial in the pea family and as well as sprouting, is also commonly used as a forage and green manure plant.

 

How to Grow:

Jar Sprouting Method:

  1. Pre-wash seed; wash seed in a sieve or similar to remove any dust.  Remove any noticeably damaged or discoloured seeds.
  2. Add the required amount of seed to a large flat sided jar and cover with lukewarm water. (example: a 500ml jar will need around 15ml of seed)
  3. Cover the jar with cheesecloth and a rubber band or similar.
  4. Let soak for 12hrs then drain the excess water.  Just tip the jar upside-down and let water drain though cheesecloth; no need to remove.  Rinse and drain again.
  5. Place jar on its side in a dark warm location.   
  6. Rinse and drain the seeds every 8-12 hours until the shoots have reached around 3.5-5cm long.
  7. Expose the seeds to sunlight for around 15 minutes or until the shoots turn green.  This step is essential to improve the nutritional benefit.
  8. Your sprouts are now ready to eat!

Germination occurs best at 16-25°C.  Ready to harvest in around 4-5 days.   Sprouts should be stored in the refridgerator when ready.
