Sunflower Sprouts

It was just a week ago that we started our sprouts. Today the sunflower sprouts are almost 3 inches high. As you can see in the photo above, the black shells are still attached. They have to be removed by hand – who knew? Now I can see why they are so expensive.

The other surprise is the taste. They actually taste good – sort of sweet and lemony. Much better that the tangled knot of alfalfa that you usually get.

These are very easy to grow. You sprout the seeds in a jar, place the sprouts in a tray (like a cafeteria tray) of organic soil, place them in a bit of light and water daily. Next thing you know, you’ll have some very tasty sprouts for salads & sandwiches.
