SHILOH FARMS Buckwheat Groats are light in color with a distinctive triangular shape and a mild, nutty flavor. Rich in fiber, protein, and complex carbohydrates, buckwheat is also an excellent source of vitamins and minerals, particularly magnesium, copper, phosphorus, and B Vitamins.
Technically the hulled seeds of the buckwheat plant, buckwheat is a pseudocereal with many grain-like properties. First cultivated over 8,000 years ago in Southeast Asia, it was one of the first crops introduced to North America by early European settlers and remains a culinary staple in Eastern Europe and the Balkans.
Despite its name, buckwheat contains no wheat or gluten and is actually a common ingredient in many gluten free recipes.
To Cook: Sort and rinse. Add 1 part groats to 2 parts water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer 15-25 minutes, or until grain is tender and liquid is absorbed.
For more flavor, try toasting the buckwheat before cooking. To do so, coat the groats with 1 Tbsp. of oil for every cup of groats and place in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Toast, stirring frequently, until they become a shade darker and very aromatic, about 4-5 minutes. At this point, add the buckwheat to the boiling water and continue with cooking instructions above.
1. Dress up cooked groats with lots of browned onions and a bit of parsley or dill.
2. Add to soups, stews, casseroles, or whole grain pilafs.
3. Mix with vegetables and herbs for a hearty filling for stuffed peppers or stuffed cabbage.
4. Use groats as a substitute for rice or bulgur.
5. Cook in milk or fruit juice for a tasty hot cereal. Finish with your choice of sweeteners, dried fruits, or nuts.

These raw groats are very clean and do not have any residual black hulls like groats from other brands have.
