These organic sprouts make a wonderful addition to salads, sandwiches, hummus, soup toppings, and more.
Medicago sativa is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world; not only for livestock, but also for human consumption. Alfalfa is an herbaceous legume that is grown in almost every state in the US but thought to have originated in what is now Iran. It can survive extreme temperatures and conditions. It will become dormant, like in times of extreme drought, and then resume growth when conditions improve.
Alfalfa sprouting seeds should be soaked for 4-6 hours and will sprout in 5-7 days. They need to be thoroughly rinsed with cool, clean water every 8-12 hours. Refrigerate your sprouts after their final rinse.
