    Cookgirl's Note:

    A multi-grain hot cereal to sustain you through the cold winter months. Find a store that sells grains in bulk so you need only purchase as much grains that are necessary for the recipe.

      In Dutch oven on medium heat, lightly toast the hardy grains (such as brown rice, whole barley, buckwheat groats) for approximately 8-10 minutes or until fragrant.

      I use a similar recipe, but cook 1/3 cup of flax seeds with the grains. It keeps everyone full until the afternoon! With ten people to feed daily, filling is important!
