Sprouting of Alfalfa Seeds

Alfalfa seeds are ranked among the most sprouted seeds in the world. This process is so easy that it can even be performed at home. You can sprout alfalfa seeds by following 5 simple steps:

  1. Put the seeds in the jar of water for the night.
    Cover with room temperature water and let them rest.
  2. Empty the jar and leave the seeds in it.
    Some air should be in contact with the moisturized seeds. Turn the jar around to spread the seeds to the sides. Afterwards, leave the jar lying horizontally. Keep the temperature at about 80 degrees. A cooler atmosphere will slow down the growth of the seeds. Light doesn’t matter a lot at this period.
  3. Rinse the seeds 2 times a day minimum to avoid a bad smell.
    Pour some cool water in, shake the jar, and empty it through a cheese cloth fastened to the top. Then repeat it again to clean the seeds of bad microorganisms. At this stage, you should be able to already observe some of them sprouting.
  4. Leave them in the sun rays.
    After about 5-6 days, the sprouts are ready and you should expose them to some sunlight for a quarter of an hour or so to catalyze fermentation.

 

Enjoy your home-made sprouts!

    These seeds are a “find” They seem to produce more sprouts than my last in bulk order that I got several years ago from whom I don’t remember. I shopped around, every place and site I could think of. Definitely the best deal around.

  • 1/2 block Cream Cheese
  • 2 whole (to 3) Green Onions
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Avocado
  • Red Onion
  • 1 whole Everything Bagel (or Any Kind Of Bagel)
  • Alfalfa Sprouts
  • 1 Or 2 Slices Of Muenster Cheese

Instructions:

Place ½ a block of cream cheese on a plate and mash it a bit with a fork. Next, chop up 2-3 green onions and mix them with the cream cheese until thoroughly combined.

Slice all veggies (tomatoes, cucumbers, avocados, red onions) thinly.

Slice bagel in half. Spread the cream cheese generously on both sides of the bagel.

Layer the vegetables. First lay the avocados right along the cream cheese to help them stay put. Next the alfalfa sprouts and then one slice of each kind of cheese. On the other half of the bagel arrange the cucumber slices in a circle.

Sprinkle the cucumbers with a pinch of salt if you would like.

Next lay the onion slices on top of the cucumbers, then the tomatoes, followed by a slice of lettuce, and if you’re feeling naughty, another slice of Muenster cheese.

Put the whole thing together and Voila! A cool, crisp, and deliciously fabulous Veggie and Cheese Bagel Sandwich.
