MILLET SEED - Kosher/Gluten Free



Temporarily Unavailable...  Millet, the seed of an annual grass with an appearance that resembles maize, is one of the oldest foods known to humans. Native to Africa and Asia, Millet has been used as a staple food source for thousands of years. Depending on the variety, the plant can grow from one to fifteen feet tall. The seeds are enclosed in colored hulls and held above the plant on a spike-like panicle. Because the hull is hard and indigestible, this grain must be hulled before it can be used for human consumption. This process does not affect the nutrient value, as the germ stays intact. Once the hull has been removed the Millet grains are small, yellow, and sphere-like with a dot on one side where it was once attached to the stem.

Millet is tasty with a nutty, sweet corn-like flavor, and contains numerous nutrients; it is nearly 15% protein, contains high amounts of fiber and B vitamins including niacin, thiamin, and riboflavin. This grain is highly nutritious, non-glutinous, and is not an acid-forming food so it is easy to digest. It is considered to be one of the least allergenic grains available and is a tasty alternative to wheat products. Best if toasted before adding cooking liquid. You can vary the amount of water used for preparation depending on the texture you desire.

For a unique treat, pop Millet like corn for use as a snack or breakfast cereal. Delicious as a cooked cereal or in casseroles, Millet can also be used in bread, soups, stew, soufflés, pilaf, and stuffing. Millet is delicious as a side dish or served with sautéed vegetables or with beans. Try Millet combined with any seasoning or herbs that are commonly used in rice dishes or combine with quinoa and brown or basmati rice. This grain absorbs flavors well in a dish and is a great companion for rice, corn, or oats.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

For best results, toast grain prior to cooking.  Add 1 cup of millet to 3 cups of liquid and simmer for 30 minutes.
