Great Grains Gift Box
For something a little different, we present our Great Grains Gift Box (collectible wooden box is optional). Perhaps even more exotic than our bean collections, here's a sampler of four indigenous New World grains that are as delicious as they are healthy. And naturally gluten-free.
The grains included are
- Pozole/Prepared Hominy If you've just had canned hominy, you're in for a real treat. Just soak and simmer and you have a fragrant pot of goodness. You can use the corn in soups, pozoles, grits and more.
- Quinoa Known as The Mother Grain, this light, protein-packed grain can be used as a starch, in soups or even in salads.
- Wild Rice Not really a rice, but an aquatic seed, this American grain seems to be hidden except at holidays and it's a shame. It has a rich, nutty flavor that can be enjoyed every day.
- Amaranth With even more protein than quinoa, amaranth should be an everyday word. Make a rich, breakfast cereal or add to soups and stews for a nutritive boost.
This gift set comes with a Rancho Gordo gift box with our logo (collectible wooden box is optional), making it an ideal gift, or a minor indulgence for you. All boxes come with our general cooking instructions and recipe ideas.
