I ate two hot dogs with homegrown and canned cucumber relish because of the photo on the right. Marathon in three weeks; last week was my 20 miler. Next week I run 22. Then I rest (kind of).
How to Sprout
What you need:
Seeds you’re going to sprout (I’m using alfalfa here)
Wide mouth jar
Cheesecloth or other permeable cloth (I use a retired dish towel)
First, get a commercial seed packet that’s grown for sprouting; the seeds will be safe to eat.
Then, add enough seeds to cover the outer ring of the bottom of the jar.
Next, rinse the seeds in bubbly, churning tap water for a few minutes.
Then, drain all but the bottom inch of water.
Allow seeds to soak a few hours.
Drain the remaining water and cover jar with the cloth. Screw the ring over the towel and put it in a sunny spot.
Every day for about week, rinse the seeds as before and drain.
Once they start to sprout, eat!
