How do I grow alfalfa sprouts without buying the growing kit? I bought organic seeds, but I am not sure how to grow them at home.

I use a big opaque sherbet tub (45 oz) size or a larger to-go container (ones with a clear top). I mix alfalfa and radish seeds together. Leave them in water for 24 hrs, kept in the dark and rinsed several times that first day. I use a fine mesh colander to rinse. After 3-5 days and rinsed every day, when they look sprouted, I put in a sunny window to green, then keep in frig and enjoy.
I use wide mouth Mason canning jars with canning lid rims and plastic screen. I add 2 soup spoons of alfalfa seeds, a cup of water, and soak for 24 hours. Then rinse and store at an angle upside down. They are rinsed twice a day until ready to eat. The sprouts love growing at about 75 - 80 degrees F.
