    Rinse a cup of medium grain brown rice until water runs clear. Place the rinsed rice in a pot with 2¼ cups of water, cover with a well-fitting lid and simmer over a low heat for 30-45 minutes.

    From: $2.25
    Clear selection

    How to Use:

    Spelt is quick and easy to cook. You cook it like risotto and throw in any seasonal things you have around. Try substituting spelt for rice or pasta in a salad or with curry or greens. If you want the spelt very soft, like steamed rice, add 3 cups of water or stock to 1 cup of spelt, cover and simmer for 1 1/2 hours. If you like it chewier and nuttier, like for salads, use 2 cups of water or stock for every cup of spelt. Cook the spelt like risotto, adding half a cup at a time and stirring after each addition until the liquid evaporates. It should be tender after about 30-40 minutes.

  • Organic Pearl Barley

    From: $1.73
    Clear selection

    Pearled barley is barley that has been processed to remove the hull and bran. It is the most common form of barley for consumption as it cooks faster and is less chewy. It is a hearty, tasty grain! Great in soups and stews, but also in stir-fry or pilaf.

    How to Use:

    It is recommended to thoroughly cook the barley before consumption. If you’re cooking it as part of a pot of soup or stew, add it in at the beginning of the cooking process. Otherwise, place 1 cup of barley and 3 cups of (salted) water or stock in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for about 45 minutes, until barley is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. Fluff grains with a fork. Cool before refrigerating.
