How to Cook Organic Rye
To cook rye berries, you’ll need to soak them overnight (1 part berries two parts water). Then, drain and rinse the grains before bringing them to a boil in a pot. Add a bit of salt and let simmer for 40-50 minutes.
Without pre-soaking, you’ll need to cook organic rye berries for about 3 hours. The grains are done when they get as firm as you need them to be. Don’t forget to remove them from heat a bit earlier if you plan to add them to a stew or otherwise cook.
Organic rye berries can be a substitute for other whole grains in the majority of recipes. Try making rye pilaf and add cooked grains to salads.
Organic rye bread tastes fantastic and is the healthiest kind of bread you can find. Be sure to use organic rye berries in various baking recipes.
How to Sprout Rye Berries at Home
- Yields approximately 3 Cups (1/2 lb.) of Sprouts. Prep 3 Tablespoons of seed, then transfer into a bowl or into your Sprouter. Add 2-3 times as much cool (60°-70°) water. Mix seeds up to assure even water contact for all.
- Allow seeds to soak for 6-12 hours. Empty the seeds into your Sprouter (if necessary). Drain off the soak water. Rinse thoroughly with cool (60°-70°) water. Drain thoroughly! Set your Sprouter anywhere out of direct sunlight and at room temperature (70° is optimal) between Rinses. Ensure sufficient air-circulation is provided.
- Always be sure to Drain very thoroughly. The most common cause of inferior sprouts is inadequate drainage. Rinse and Drain again every 8-12 hours for 3 days.
Enjoy your home-made sprouts!
