Description

Organic Kasha makes a delicious, nutritious porridge.

Organic Kasha is made from whole hulled buckwheat groats which have been gently roasted.  These kasha groats look just like buckwheat but have a slightly different colour after roasting and have a richer roasted flavour.

Organic Buckwheat was first cultivated in 4000 BC in Europe but is also known for its popularity in Asia.  Most Buckwheat is grown in the Northern Hemisphere with Central and Eastern Europe being the best producers.

Buckwheat is commonly found in Eastern European cuisine, with a porridge like dish called Kasha being one of Russians national dishes.  Kasha is made from toasted buckwheat and is served sweet or savoury as a side dish or main.

The organic buckwheat groats are roasted at low temperatures to preserve the valuable nutrients buckwheat is so well known for.  You can add these kasha groats to muesli or cook them like oats.

Buckwheat is nutrient rich and a great option for those looking for alternatives due to allergies or simply variety in their cooking.  It has an earthy, nutty flavour which goes well in a range of recipes.  If you want to try baking with ground buckwheat we sell organic buckwheat flour here.
