A natural hulled millet that is chemical-free. Hulled millet is one of the oldest foods known to man. It ranks as the sixth most important grain in the world, sustaining 1/3 of the world's population. It is highly nutritious and gluten-free. Millet has a mild, sweet, nut-like flavor and is high in protein, fiber, B vitamins, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and potassium. It is best when soaked in water overnight or boiled to tenderize. Millet is delicious as a cooked cereal and in casseroles, breads, soups and stews. Up to 30% millet flour can be used in baked goods. Millet is great for sprouting. This would make a great addition to any long-term food storage.
Ingredients: Hulled millet naturally grown.
Directions: Millet may be toasted to bring out a nuttier flavor. It can be done by adding directly to pan over heat and stirring 3-4 minutes. To cook, roast 1 cup millet. Carefully add 2 cups boiling water or vegetable stock and ½ tsp. salt. Return to a boil, then reduce the heat and cover the pot. Simmer until all the liquid has been absorbed, 20-25 minutes. Turn off heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Fluff immediately with a fork. Yields 3 ½ to 4 cups cooked millet. For moisture millet add ½ cup more water.
