Honeville 9 Grain Cracked Cereal

Delicious, Nutritious and Very Versatile

The Cracked Nine Grain Mix from Honeyville Farms can be used in a variety of applications and makes a great addition to  your food storage.  This cracked cereal mix contains hard red wheat, soft white wheat, barley, rye, oats, corn, millet, buckwheat and flax seeds.  All of the grains have been milled to a nice, course consistency, that is very similar to most commercially cracked wheat.  The texture is even and consistent.  This mix is a good source of fiber, protein and iron.  This cereal will store for 7-10 years sealed in the #10 can.

As a cereal, this mix makes a great hot breakfast.  You simply add 1 part nine grain cracked mix to 4 parts boiling water.  You then cook for about 20-30 minutes.  You can then add in your choice of maple syrup, honey or other sweeteners, along with butter or milk where desired.

A good way to incorporate this mix into your bread is to grind the nine grain mix into flour and then use 50% flour and 50% nine grain mix flour.  You could also add in 1/4 cup of the cracked mix (unground) to your bread recipe to help add a courser texture to your bread.
