Alfalfa is a bean sprout, and looks a bit like cress. It's great for adding a crunch to salads and sandwiches. They're best eaten as soon as possible (the fresher, the crunchier, the better).

Just a little note on your sprouts. As they’re a living plant they keep growing once packed. That means, sometimes the root of the sprout grows tiny root hairs, as the sprout searches for water. Often mistaken for a white mould, these ‘rootlets’ in fact mean your sprouts are alive and well, and they’re perfectly safe to still eat. If you want the rootlets to disappear though, just give the punnet a little shake.

Producer

SkySprouts was founded in 1984 by Brett and Kathy Kellett. Everyone thought they were having a hippie phase when they bought an acre of land and moved to Devon to grow organic veg, long before organic food became popular. Kathy read about the health benefits of sprouts and started sprouting seeds on the kitchen windowsill in jars. Local people couldn’t get enough, and before they knew it, SkySprouts was born! Thirty years later, their daughters Ellisha and Kelda have taken over the business and are still growing their tasty superfood sprouts on the same organic farm in Devon.

Ingredients & allergens

Abel & Cole handles celery, celeriac and nuts on site. Due to our packing process and re-use of boxes there is a risk of cross-contamination from these, and all other allergens.

Storage & prep

Alfalfa sprouts need very little preparation. Simply wash the sprouts and then eat them raw, in casseroles or stews, or sautéed with vegetables! Brett Kellet, who grows our sprouts, likes them best when mixed with a little mayonnaise and a dash of curry powder. Before eating: · Rinse raw bean sprouts thoroughly. · Avoid sprouts that have turned brown or have a strange odour. · Use the bean sprouts by the 'use by' dates. · Keep them refrigerated. People with weakened immune systems, as well as the very old and the very young, should not eat raw sprouts.
