Similar to steel cut oats - these are not steamed or treated in any way, preserving all of the nutrition inherent in the grain and intended to be eaten fresh.
Oats are a crop ideally suited to cool moist climates and Maine potato farmers have been growing oats for years to help keep balance in the soil. Oats are a beneficial addition to the farm ecosystem and a healthful addition to the human diet.
Maine Grains mission is to cultivate and deliver exceptional organic stone ground grains, which are locally grown and sourced. Through a unique stone-milling process, they are able to preserve nutritional content and improve the performance of their flour for natural fermentation baking.
Try these cracked oats for breakfast, in homemade granola, or other baked goods. Oats are a high energy, very healthy grain. A ratio of two parts water to one part oats is recommended for cooking. Soak overnight for softer oatmeal. Cracked oats make porridge in 25-30 minutes of simmering.
Store in a cool, dry, dark place.
