Alfalfa, Arabic for 'father of all foods' which is very appropriate as it is packed full of lots of different vitamins & nutrients.

How to grow Alfalfa Sprouting Seeds:

Equipment
Wide mouth jars
Lid
Sprouting Seeds 

Culture

  1. Make sure that the jars are super clean and sterile
    Lid options
    - Use screw top lid and simply drill or punch several holes in the lid – but not too large, the water needs to be able to drain, but not the seed!
    - An alternative could be Muslin cloth secured with a rubber band around the neck of the jar
    - Replacement lid with fine sieve built-in
    Place seeds in the bottom of the jar and cover with water 
    2. Use water that is at room temperature…water that is either too hot or too cold can shock the seeds. Coldwater can also slow the germination process
    3. Don't put too much seed in the jar, allow the seed sufficient room to expand…insufficient space will lead to mould issues as air cannot circulate sufficiently
  2. After the initial soak of 8-12 hours, the water needs to be emptied and filled back up with room temperature water
  3. Turn the jar upside down and let the water drain out, the seeds should be left damp and not swimming in water
  4. Rinse 2-3 times per day with room temperature water
  5. Continue the rinse cycle until harvest 
  6. Harvest on day 6, when the leaves are open and most are green
  7. De-hull before refrigerating 

Hulls may be removed but they are not harmful to eat, removal helps to minimise spoilage in storage.
