Why Whole Grains

 

 
  • I wanted to say how impressed I am with the hard red spring wheat. I milled it today and used my usual bread recipe. The dough was nice and firm yet soft. The loaves rose beautifully, so much so that I could have made a whole extra loaf! Wendy Kever
  • We like knowing the product is organic. When we grind the fresh grain, we appreciate the better quality and taste of the finished product. For example our fresh home-made waffles are full and tasty.
  • I am using Fieldstone whole grains in my bread and I'm selling out at the Farmers Market. I have the Duett 100 and grind my own flour. I am having a hard time keeping up with the demand for ancient grain breads. This is the only thing that sets me apart at the market. I make Kamut, Triticale, and Rye breads. (Artisan bread in about 5 minutes)
  • When I'm not home, my husband makes his own porridge. He has Muscular Dystrophy and he feels it sticks with him. We add pecans, cranberries, and dates. The nutty natural flavour is very fresh. It's really important to educate our children where our food comes from.
  • I've owned the Komo Duett 100 for about 2 years and actively use mixed grains for biscuits, breads and pastries. I like the taste of the fresh flours in the baking. The flaker works well for my fresh oats and flax. I keep it plugged in and handy as I use it a lot.
  • I am on a specialized diet and your soup mix tastes great plain or in a chilli. It provides me the protein I need. I love it and am buying a 20 kg. bag.
  • My husband and I are vegetarian and have always struggled to ensure we get complete and balanced protein in our diet. When we discovered quinoa at Fieldstone we learned it is a complete protein and have noticed a difference in our energy levels. We use it in everything! And we love that it's grown in western Canada.
  • My Dad eats the ultimate breakfast every morning and loves it. I was finding my breakfast left me hungry a few hours later. I am really active and so I was looking for something wholesome that would be satisfying. I started eating the breakfast flaked with hot water, yogurt and fruit and I was amazed at how good it tasted and how good it made me feel. I recommend it to all my friends and can't wait to eat it every morning!
  • I developed a wheat sensitivity a few years ago and recently a friend introduced me to Emmer. My wife and I love it and have made it a regular part of our meals. We find it very versatile and easy to digest. It makes a great side dish and emmer flour makes a nice nutty tasting bread.

How to Enjoy

All whole grains should be well rinsed and drained before use.

  • Reap the greatest benefits of Okanagan Apple Whole Cereal for breakfast by preparing it raw. Simply soak grains overnight or 10-12 hrs in the refrigerator. This has the added benefit of activating the seed enzymes, making the grain more digestible and nutritious. Remember to rinse well before soaking. Sprinkle on cinnamon to taste. Enjoy with yogurt and fresh fruit for a delicious start to your day.
  • To cook, soak grains as above, add water to cover and bring to boil in a small sauce pan. Simmer for 7-10 minutes or to desired consistency. The soaked grains may also be cooked on med-high for 4 -5 minutes in the microwave. Sprinkle on cinnamon to taste.
  • Note that the flax secretes gelatinous substance due to the Omega-3 fatty acids when soaked that is very healthy and nutritious. If you do not care for the resulting texture then rinse the grains again before consuming.

Ultimate Cereal Breakfast Sundae

Ingredients:

Emmer, Oats, Buckwheat, Brown Flax, Apple and a touch of cinnamon.

Interesting note:

The dehydrated apples we use in our breakfast are recovered from local orchards. Many apples in an orchard are wasted because they have minor blemishes and are rejected for fresh consumption. These are perfect for dehydrating and add great taste to our cereal while increasing the number of usable apples from the orchard.

Our emmer, buckwheat, flaxseed, and oats are grown in beautiful British Columbia on healthy organic soils.

It is part of Fieldstone Granary's coordinated Organic Producer plan, where crops are grown within one degree of separation, according to the high standards of the Canadian Organic Regime. This way Fieldstone can assure a high level of purity and integrity of the grain.
