Our most popular sprout with a delicious nutty flavour. Excellent for gourmet salads, omelettes and sandwiches. High in fibre, vitamins, minerals and proteins. Research has found Alfalfa fibre pushes cholesterol out of the arteries while its saponins also scrub and dissolve it. The sprouts are many times more nutritious if exposed to the sunlight about the fifth day after germination. They can then be harvested.
Alfalfa or Lucerne is a real health food, rich in nutrient contents and has high levels of vitamins and minerals. It is excellent to eat in salads, sandwiches or with many dishes. Sow in a large coffee or jam jar and place the seed in the jar, soak in tepid water for about 3 hours, covering the top of the jar with either muslin, cheesecloth or a cotton handkerchief. Pour off the water and allow good drainage and ventilation to help sprout.
