Sprouts Update

BRRRRR! It’s cold out there today! It’s -35 Celcius (-45 C with the windchill) and not much sign of it warming up anytime soon. The sun is shining though so that makes me happy.

A few days ago I posted about the sprouts I started. I’ve been munching on them for a couple days now and they’re oh so tasty. Well, in my opinion anyway.

It didn’t take long for them to grow, and the alfalfa seeds definitely give you a lot of bang for your buck. I can see how that one little package can easily yield 30 cups of sprouts. My one tablespoon of seeds yielded almost four cups of sprouts on Day 4. I’m sure if I had left them another day the jar would have been completely full.

I took pictures of the progress each day starting with the seeds after the initial soaking for several hours. Check out the pics below.

Day 1
The inside of the jar is coated with the newly soaked seeds.
Day 2
Can you see them starting to sprout?
Day 3
Time to rinse and drain them.
Day 4
See how full the jar is?

The best part of the process is being able to enjoy fresh greens within a few days. The photo below is of my supper Sunday evening, which was Day 4.

Chicken with sprouts. It was so good!
