Directions

  1. You need a blender(or food processor, or better yet, a coffee grinder) to make this recipe.
  2. Get out your coffee grinder.
  3. Measure the dry oatmeal into it.
  4. Whirl the oatmeal until it is powdery, like flour.
  5. Dump the oatmeal into a mixing bowl.
  6. Measure the barley into the blender.
  7. Process it until powdery.
  8. Dump it into the bowl with the oatmeal.
  9. Measure the brown rice into the blender.
  10. Process it until powdery.
  11. The rice will take longer processing than the oatmeal or barley.
  12. It will be a tiny bit coarser after blending too, that is alright.
  13. When it is as powdery as you can get it, dump it into the bowl with the other grains.
  14. Add the whole wheat flour and the cornmeal, along with the sesame seeds, is using.
  15. Stir the mixture up to combine it thoroughly.
  16. Transfer the mixture to a resealable container and label.
  17. Store on the pantry shelf.
  18. Makes 3 1/4 cups.
  19. To Cook: 1/3 cup 5 Grain Cereal, 1 cup cold tap water, Dash Salt, and 2 tablespoons brown sugar(or 1 tbls. honey).
  20. In a small saucepan combine the cereal and cold water.
  21. You use cold water because it prevents lumps.
  22. Add the salt and brown sugar.
  23. Bring to a boil over high heat.
  24. Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for about 3 to 5 minutes.
  25. Serve with milk.
  26. Makes 1 serving.
  27. To make 4 servings, use 1 cup of 5 Grain Cereal, 3 cups of cold tap water, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/3 cup brown sugar.
  28. This is a very healthy and hearty way to start the morning.
  29. I like this cereal much better than most other mixed grain cereals I have tried.
  30. The rice gives the cooked cereal a nice chewy texture which contrasts nicely with the smoothness of the whole wheat flour and cornmeal.
  31. If you don't have quick barley, you can replace it with more oatmeal, or even wheat germ, or wheat bran.
  32. I've also thought that Rye Flour might make a nice addition, although I have never tried it.
  33. This cereal is an excellent source of B vitamins and fiber.
