Red Clover Sprout:

Using either a seed sprouting jar, sprouting tray, terra cotta sprouter, or hemp sprout bag, add about 1.5 tbsp red clover sprout seeds to your container and allow seeds to initially soak for 4-6 hours. After initial soaking, continue to rinse red clover sprouting seeds 2-3x per day and immediately drain, not allowing water to sit and soak. Rinse seeds 2-3x per day for 4-6 days, keeping organic clover sprouts fresh, crunchy, and hydrated without waterlogging. Non-GMO red clover sprouts are quick to harvest in just 4-6 days, ready for fresh use with a soft, light, mild, and crisp bite (similar to alfalfa) and only about 25 calories per cup. Tasting, looking, and sprouting very similar to alfalfa sprouts, red clover sprouts have become one of the most popular varieties for their mild, agreeable, and very universal flavour.
