These raw, unprocessed, Non-GMO oat groats are among the healthiest grains on the planet. Because they only have the hulls removed they are the most healthy way to eat oats, even healthier than old fashioned rolled oats! Enjoy them in grain bowls, sprinkled in salads or in stews as you would barley and other whole grains, all bringing the amazing health benefits of the entire unprocessed grain. Our oat groats come to us directly from the farmer at the Mendocino Grain Project in California. Ditch those bulk bins full of who knows how old grains, get farm fresh whole grain oat groats.
How to Cook Oat Groats
Because they are whole unprocessed grains, Oat Groats benefit from long cook times so we prefer using a slow cooker overnight or all day, or a pressure cooker. You can simmer them on the stove for 1-2 hours with a ratio of one part groats to 4 parts water, cook them in a pressure cooker for 14 minutes with a ratio of one part groats to 3 parts water, cook them in a slow cooker for 5 hours with a ratio of one part groats to 3 parts water, or you can bring one cup of groats and 2 cups of water to a boil for 5 minutes and then allow to soak overnight.
About The Farmer: Mendocino Grain Project
In the midst of the pandemic young farmer Rachel Britten took over the Mendocino Grain Project from the retiring founder. The Grain Project began in 2009 in an effort to provide their community with healthy grains and local food security. Rachel grows and mills grains in Mendocino County, California and because they have the capacity to clean and process grain for other farmers the ultimate goal is to provide what is necessary so that other local farmers can join the effort to grow more staple crops in Mendocino County.
