Recipes with Kamut Ancient Grains
Posted on 19 April 2016
Kracklin’ Kamut® is ancient Kamut® grain, organically grown in Montana and carefully roasted in small batches at our plant in Big Sandy, MT (pop. 600). We use Montana-grown, organic, cold-pressed, hi-oleic safflower oil. It is fresh-pressed near town by The Oil Barn®. Lightly seasoned with sea salt from ancient caves in Utah, this simply clean product is a satisfying snack. Delicious on salads, fruit, veggies and more.
Kamut® is ancient wheat commonly known as Khorasan. Each kernel is 3 to 4 times the size of those found in normal bread wheat. The Kamut® trademark is your guarantee that this grain has been organically grown, is high in protein and minerals such as selenium, and is 100% pure, having never been mixed with modern wheat. It is enjoyed by a vast majority of the people who suffer from non-celiac wheat sensitivities. Legend has it that it was a grain Noah carried with him on the ark.
