Growing Organic Alfalfa Sprout Seeds

Alfalfa seed is small, soft-shelled, and only requires a quick 4-6 hour soak. Alfalfa is one of the cleanest and most hygienic sprouting seeds, only requiring 2-3 daily rinses of cold water while keeping sprouts protected from light. Although the seeding rate may seem light, alfalfa sprouts will expand in 6 days or less, quickly filling the tray or jar to capacity. In the final 12-24 hours of sprouting, allow the alfalfa sprouts access to light to develop green chlorophyll. Sprouts may grow entirely in the dark for sweeter, white alfalfa sprouts.

Sprouting trays conveniently stacked on the kitchen counter can provide a wide and shallow all-in-one place for seeds to soak, rinse, drain, germinate, and grow. Alternatively, sprouting jars are the most popular and appealing method today for compact and portable 2-6 day sprouts. At home, work, or on the road, jars also provide a decorative all-in-one place for seeds to soak, rinse, drain, germinate, and grow.

Culinary Tips

Alfalfa sprouts are best harvested 2-3 inches long, or at about 5-6 days with or without chlorophyll production. Once harvested, they should be rinsed once more and then immediately consumed. They are delicious on sandwiches, in salads or wraps, and even as a quick stand-alone snack!
