Our "pride of the farm" Grainworks Organic Triticale is a wholesome whole grain we grow that's perfect for cereal mixes or ground for flour. Triticale: The best of wheat and rye together in one grain Triticale is a highly nutritious whole grain hybrid of wheat and rye, combining the benefits of both and higher in protein than wheat. From rye, triticale inherited the ability to survive cold, drought, and acidic soil -- conditions that destroy wheat crops. Like wheat, triticale contains gluten, meaning it is not suitable for gluten free diets and can be used alone to make bread. Bread made from triticale are denser and heavier than wheat bread due to triticale's lower gluten content. From a home chef's view triticale can easily replace wheat, rye, or rice in many recipes. Nutritionally triticale is similar to wheat with a nice amino acid balance, dietary fibre and vegan protein. Like other whole grains, triticale is also a good source of vitamins and minerals, including folic acid, calcium, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, iron, and B vitamins. Tasty Tips and Storage Use whole triticale as you would wheat berries or other whole grains, in pilafs and stews, or grind into pieces or flour to use in baked goods. Cooking instructions: Combine 1 C triticale berries and 2-1/4 cups of cold water in a medium-size saucepan. Cover and soak at room temperature for 6 to 8 hours or overnight. After soaking add another 1 cup of water to the pot and heat to a fast boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook until tender, approximately 40-50 minutes. Drain the triticale and set aside to cool. Letting it rest and "firm up" in the refrigerator before using is recommended. Store cooked Triticale may be stored up to 3 days in the refrigerator, in a bowl covered with plastic wrap. Store uncooked triticale as you would other whole grains: in a cool, dry place, and in our resealable bags or a glass container away from sunlight and moisture to keep its healthy oils from going rancid. Properly stored triticale remains fresh for about a year.
