Rye is a delicious, earthy-tasting grain.
This cereal is one of my favorites!
It reminds me of a mix that I used to eat years ago, topped with ground flax.
Rye sometimes gets a bad rap because people think that it tastes like 'rye bread' and they don't like 'rye bread'. But I've discovered that most people who don't like 'rye bread' really don't like the caraway seeds and when you leave those out, they think it's pretty good :)
So if you have some rye sitting around in your pantry and don't know what to do with it, perhaps this might work for you! You can use store-bought flour or grind your own rye berries.
1 cup rye flour
1 cup cold water
4 cups of water
dash of salt
Heat the 4 cups of water in a pot with the salt, to a boil.
Beat the 1 cup of water with the cup of rye flour.*
Once the water is boiling, whisk in the rye paste and continue to cook until thickened.
About 5 minutes.
*To get a smoother texture, whisk the flour into all the (cold) water (5 cups) at once and then bring to a boil.
This is excellent topped with butter and honey or butter and molasses.
You can also add fruits, cinnamon, or other spices.
