Isaiah 61: 11 For as the soil makes the sprout come up and a garden causes seeds to grow, so the Sovereign Lord will make righteousness and praise spring up before all nations.
Yesterday I went to the concordance to see what Scripture said about sprouts. Isaiah 61 spoke to my heart in more ways than about my sprout project. If you need a reminder of where the Lord stands on Justice, read the entire chapter. I’m so thankful that He is in control and that even when our world seems to be in chaos, nothing surprises God and He’s already working ahead of the situation to provide for His Children. Praise Him!
But back to my sprout project: over Christmas when the Rohrer Fam got together, I was supposed to bring toppings for a salad bar. I remembered my mom‘s little container of organic alfalfa sprouts seeds sitting in a forgotten spot in the cupboard. So we did a little bit of research to resurrect the art and I’ve been growing sprouts 1000 mile an hour ever since. 😂
It’s super simple.
Soak a Tablespoon of seeds in a glass jar of cold water for about 8 hours. (Cover the jar with something breathable/drainable like cheese cloth)
Drain and place jar on its side in a cool, dark spot. (Or sit it on the cabinet with a tea towel over it)
Rinse with warmish water multiple times a day. 2 times is good, 4 or 5 times is best. Drain after each rinse.
Several days later (like 4 or 5) once the sprouts have reached desired length, place them in the sunshine for the chlorophyll process to take place. Or if you don’t mind eating washed out sprouts just use them as is.
Store them in the fridge in an air tight container.
But seriously, we’ve been enjoying them on salads and Sweet Lebanon Bologna sandwiches and everything in between.
Em: cute outfits, where are they from?
Jul: I ordered them online for the boys to wear on their first Sunday to church when they were newborn. All I know is that Chinese must have big babies.
Deb is back at Berea teaching school 2 afternoons a week, so Mother and I have been enjoying the chance to hang out with Sweet Baby A. He’s a young sprout, but not a very little one 😂 it won’t be long until he’s caught up with Uriah ❤️
Enjoy seeing the nephews grow. The twins are looking mischievous.
Where do you find alfalfa seed to sprout? I haven’t done it for a while because I don’t know where to get the seed. Thanks for keeping us up on your nephews. So cute!
My mom founds these in the bulk food section of our grocery store. She said that you are the one that got her started growing these 😉
