At "Beyond Bread", I had a sandwich which was smashed avocado, turkey, and alfalfa sprouts on a huge cibiatta roll. The sprouts reminded me that, when I was a kid, we used to grow sprouts on the counter top in a canning jar. Thinking about it got me to looking up the process on the Internet so I could go about growing sprouts again. I did not remember a lot of the steps. I found the seeds at Vitamin Cottage/Natural Grocer's in the produce section (they had quite a few options for sprouts but I settled on good 'ol alfalfa sprouts since I know I like them). I started the sprouts on Saturday and was enjoying them by Wednesday evening. I grew 1 1/2 tablespoons of seeds this time around and the jar was packed. Next time around, I will sprout just 1 tablespoon of seeds. For now, they are in the refrigerator and I am enjoying them on sandwiches and salads.
