With no instructions on "how to sprout"... I just took 2 even tablespoons of alfalfa seeds and sprinkled them into the sprouter. I ran water over them, put the lid on, sat in down in the Tupperware container and left it on the counter.
|It looked like this the first day|
|Hard to photograph, they started showing little bits of white|
|Ok, now the alfalfa looked like it was growing worms...|
|This is within 1 week and they are PACKED in there!|
Thrifty note: I paid $13.30 for 1 kg of seeds. I used 2 tbsp of that to make what looks like 4 of those little containers in the store. Here they sell for $2-$4 per container. So by sprouting my own 2 times, the seeds have more than paid for themselves!
Now, that said, I just read somewhere that they are not good for you... anyone else hear this? I realize that the more books I read, the more I won't know what is true and what is false... but... just wondering...
