Raw -NOT Mushy, Very Nutritious & Delicious!, By javajunki 'javajunki'
October 8, 2009
I was originally hesitant to try these given the mixed reviews. I really love buckwheat and use it in a variety of different ways including as a hot morning cereal, fresh ground for homemade bread and pancakes (nothing beats fresh ground buckwheat flour made into pancakes with 100 wholesome maple syrup) and even in a type of pilaf. After re-reading a few things it appears there are some misconceptions about this product...1. - This is indeed raw and whole grain groats. If you are searching for roasted/toasted buckwheat you need to keep searching. If you are searching for partially ground, flaked, rolled, etc you also need to keep looking. For those that are familiar with Kasha - this is not roasted nor partially broken...when cooked it will turn into little round balls rather like tapioca.2. Not mushy...try this a few times to get the cooking correct. I eat this for breakfast with a little honey several times per week and it is excellent. No gluten, lots of...

City slickers have no option to buy it raw in town because in that form buckwheat is only good for about 24 months vacuum packed at best, yet in roasted form it will be good for decades. Nothing personal - just stating the fact. This particular buckwheat is simple and wholesome natural grain that needs to be flavored with other things like fenugreek seed or spices. I also tried to grow it and it does sprout in about 48 hours. It is superb natural product. It can be cooked in the matter of 15 minutes and then eaten with meat and gravy of choice or with milk and honey as cereal in the morning. This is 'going to the basics' type of food. Please notice that people that thrive on aspartame soda and artificial flavored cheese from plastic jar toped with...
