Description

Kitchen Garden almond seeds are:

  • Non-GM
  • Certified organic
  • Packed with protein
  • A source of vitamin E
  • Rich in bone-building calcium & potassium
  • A source of fibre
  • High in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats
  • Rich in antioxidants
  • Naturally alkalising

Did You Know? Almonds are the only alkaline-forming nut, and one of only a few alkalising proteins. Alkalising foods help you to maintain a healthy pH throughout your body.

Sprouting your almonds has the following benefits:

  • Increases nutrient density
  • Makes the almonds more easily digestible
  • Makes the almonds more alkalising
  • Neutralises “anti-nutrients” like  phytic acid & enzyme inhibitors
  • Convenient, cost-effective & can be done all year round

Sprouts are a great example of “medicinal” food, helping to protect your system against all sorts of ailments.

Suitable for sprouting and general consumption.

Recipe for Almond Granola Bars:
Ingredients:

  • 1 cup dates, pitted
  • 1 cup sprouted almonds, toasted & chopped
  • ¼ cup natural almond butter
  • ¼ cup raw honey/ authentic maple syrup
  • 1½ cups rolled oats (raw or toasted)
  • A sprinkling of carob chips & vanilla powder (optional)

Method:

  • Blend the dates in a food processor for about 1 minute, until you have a firm dough-like consistency.
  • Mix the oats, almonds & “date dough” together in in a bowl; set aside.
  • Warm the honey & almond butter in a saucepan over low heat. Pour over oat mixture & mix well, breaking up the dates.
  • Transfer the mixture to a lined baking pan. Press down until evenly flattened.
  • Cover with parchment or plastic wrap, & leave in the fridge for 15-20 minutes to set.
  • Chop into 10 even bars & enjoy! The bars will keep for up to a few days in an airtight container.

Directions

Please Note: This product consists of the sprouting seeds only; sprouting jars & stand are not included. You will need a full standard sprouting kit to grow your seeds.

  • Add 3-4Tbsp of your dry seeds to a clean sprouting jar; enough to lightly cover the bottom of an upright jar.
  • Cover the sprouting jar with the mesh screen & secure it with a rubber band.
  • Cover your dry seeds with 2-4cm water & soak for 6-8 hours or overnight.
  • Drain & rinse in fresh water, swirling gently while draining to disperse the seeds across the surface of the sprouting jar. Place the jar at an angle on your sprouting stand.
  • Keep your sprouting jar in natural light but never in direct sunlight. Rinse your seeds 2-3 times a day in cool water. The water should be rinsed clear.
  • Harvest within 2-3 days of the “tails” and/or greenery appearing from the seeds.
  • Drain the sprouts well & leave 2-4 hours to dry on your sprouting stand, before transferring to an airtight, covered storage container.
  • Enjoy your sprouts in 3-7 days; keep them refrigerated in an airtight container. Start sprouting new seeds every 2- 3 days for a continuous, fresh supply.

Top Tips:

  • Never eat sprouts that have started to smell bad.
  • Always wash your containers thoroughly between plantings.
  • Remove any broken or damaged seeds before you start sprouting.
  • Double rinsing is recommended for beans & legumes.
  • Never eat sprouted soy beans with brown spots.
  • Unsprouted seeds should be stored in an airtight container in a cupboard. The germination life of seeds is generally 2-5 years.

Really tasty and fun to sprout. I managed to get a small tree growing but is really hard to put a kernel on the side to grow as they are so tasty
