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.

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.

Storage

Dried peas will keep for several months if stored in an airtight container in a cool, dry, dark place. If you need to store them for longer, you can keep them in the refrigerator.

How to Enjoy

Dried peas should be well rinsed and drained just before use.

  • Use dry whole peas to make classic Indian dishes such as dahl.
  • Roast, then season them with salt for a tasty, crunchy snack.
  • Purée cooked peas with your favorite herbs and spices and serve as a side dish.
  • Add whole peas to soups and stews. With added spices, these dishes can be mild or spicy, whichever you prefer.

To Cook:

Whole peas should be soaked first to reduce cooking time. Bring the beans and fresh soaking water to a boil for two to five minutes before soaking and you need to pre-soak only two to four hours, covered. Even for overnight soaking, boiling first will help prevent the beans from souring because it destroys any wild yeasts. Soak beans in the refrigerator if you soak overnight.

Drain and change water before cooking. Using the soaking water as part of the cooking water preserves a few vitamins but promotes gas formation, while boiling and draining off the soaking water removes over half the complex sugars that cause gas. Place the legumes in a saucepan using three cups of fresh water for each cup of peas. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer and cover. Simmer 1 ½ to 2 hours or until peas naturally dissolve into puree.
