Larry’s Market Organic Amaranth Grain 400g
Amaranth is a fast-growing, drought-resistant plant that produces a small seeded grain in a sorghum-like head. The amaranth seed is remarkably tiny; it takes approximately 32 amaranth seeds to equal the weight of 1 wheat kernel. Since the grain is minute size, it possesses highly concentrated nutrition, due to the fact that much of the seed is constituted of the nutrient-rich outer layer.
Boil 1 cup amaranth grain in 2 1/2 cups water or stock. Cook for 18-20 minutes, or until grain is tender. Overcooking can cause amaranth to become sticky.
When stored in a cool (preferably less than 60˚F) and dry location (less than 65% humidity), shelf life is approximately 1 year.
Amaranth grain can be cooked and eaten as a cereal or side dish alone or with other whole grains. It can also be popped like popcorn, expanding to about 10 times the original volume. The popped amaranth has a toasted, nutty flavour, and can be used in a variety of ways such as in confections bound with syrup, molasses or honey, and in high-energy granola bars.
