Closely related to wheat and barley, rye has a deep, distinctive flavour and can be eaten as a whole grain, ground into flour, or sprouted. The flour is traditionally used to make robust, close-textured breads.
Add cooked rye - or if cooking time allows, dry grains - to stews and casseroles. Add cooked grains to salads.
Rinse, bring to the boil then simmer until tender (about 45 minutes). Speed up cooking by pre-soaking for a few hours.

Split Fava Beans are tasty, versatile and easy to cook - they don’t even need soaking.
Use our Organic Split Fava Beans to make dal, falafel or hummus - or add a handful or more to soups, stews or curries. The beans get softer and softer the longer they're cooked.
Or try our new Fava Bean Chips - they're cheaper than Split Fava Beans and cook just the same only a little faster.View full product details
