Craving Fresh Food

When you’re out sailing around in the summer months, produce at the tiny grocery stores on the small islands can be very limited. Unless you hit the grocery store the day its fresh shipment arrives, the selection of fresh food can be very limited. As much fun as it is to buy the bottom of the barrel week old lettuce, sometimes you’d just rather pass.
I don’t know why I didn’t think of this years ago, but alfalfa sprouts are dead easy to sprout on a boat. Depending on the temperature, from start to finish you can have fresh sprouts within 3 days. You can either DIY, but you can find sprouting seeds and a mason jar with a mesh lid at some grocery stores or garden shops.
