mycookingsecrets thoughts:

Although sprouts provide us with hundreds of nutritional benefits we can’ t skip over the dangers coming out of sprouting. To avoid molds, toxins, even salmonella, keep clean and sanitized all equipment used. Place sprouts in the safest, secured spot, away from direct sunlight.

Throw away cultivated sprouts in case you notice any sign of mold or small insects inside the jar. Try to control moisture level, by draining well the sprouting jar. Following the basic instructions, eliminates or lowers the percentage of generating mold or any other harmful effects.

How do we use, how we eat alfalfa sprouts?

Eat alfalfa sprouts cooked or raw, drizzled with one of your favorite dressings, in sandwiches, in salads, soups, stir-fried, as garnish, etc.
