Recipe by Chocolatl
Postum was a grain-based beverage made by Kraft. It has now been discontinued. This is supposed to be a good substitute. Use more or less per cup depending on how strong you like it. If you can't find pre-ground bulgur wheat, you can grind it yourself in a coffee mill. This recipe is from Cooks.com and I have not tried it.
- 5 cups wheat bran, moderately ground (Hodgson Mill brand recommended)
- 4 cups bulgur wheat, moderately ground (Bob's Red Mill brand recommended)
- 2 cups cornmeal, coarsely ground (Bob's Red Mill brand recommended)
- 1 cup unsulphured molasses (Grandma's brand recommended)
