How to sprout Alfalfa Seeds?
To sprout alfalfa seeds, start by soaking them in water for 12 hours. Then, drain the seeds and place them on a damp paper towel. Fold the towel over the seeds so they are covered and put them in a warm, dark place. Check on the seeds every day, misting them with water if they start to dry out. After 3-5 days, you should see sprouts starting to form. Once the sprouts are about an inch long, they are ready to eat! Add them to salads, sandwiches, or wraps for a delicious and nutritious crunch.
