*Cooking Methods

To Simmer: Bring liquid to a boil. Stir in the grain. Cover and reduce the heat to low. Cook until liquid is absorbed and grain is tender to the bite. Fluff with a fork before serving. Soaking whole grains in the liquid overnight in the refrigerator will reduce the cooking time.

To Steep: Pour boiling liquid over the grain. Cover and let stand until grain is tender to the bite.

For Cereal (using meal, grits, or flakes): Combine cold water and grain. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, over high heat. Reduce temperature to low, cover, and cook to desired thickness.

**Cooking times are approximate. Length of time stored since harvest can cause fluctuations in the time needed to cook a grain. Always check for doneness 5 minutes before shortest specified cooking time, and then be prepared to cook it longer than the longest specified time.

***Before cooking roasted buckwheat groats, stir the grain into 1 beaten egg. Then, pour the mixture into a heated skillet and toast it to dry the egg, about 3 minutes. This egg-wash will keep the grains separate and crisp during cooking and prevent the buckwheat from turning to mush.
