Red Clover is a fast growing plant and if you were to examine it after only a week’s time, you would already notice the green leaves starting. Even at this early stage, Red Clover sprouts provide the full flavor of the fully grown adult vegetables. Red clover is a cousin of alfalfa with bigger leaves and a fresh garden flavor. Red clover looks so much like alfalfa that many people can’t distinguish between either their seeds or their sprouts.
Red Clover also contains vitamins A, B, C, E, & K, and in minerals and trace elements. Contains more protein than lettuce and spinach.
Soak 4 to 8 hours – Place 1 - 2 tbsp of seeds in a wide mouth jar. Cover with screen and secure with a rubber band. Add water, swirl, and drain. Refill jar with water. Soak seeds 4 - 8 hours. Drain water well and invert jar at an angle in a sink or a bowl.
Rinse twice a day – Rinse seeds by refilling jar with water and gently swirling. Drain well and invert jar.
Enjoy! Ready to eat in 5 days – To keep fresh, refrigerate well drained sprouts. Sprouts store best when fairly dry- do not store immediately after rinsing.
1 tbsp (approximately .41 oz) of dry seeds yields 3-4 cups of sprouts.
Storage: If you'd like to extend the germination life of your seeds, store them in the fridge. If you store your seeds in the freezer in a sealed freezer bag, they'll last even longer!
