Day 280

Kasha

This is an Eastern European thing, but I had never run across it before. It’s roasted buckwheat particals that are cooked like rice. (I just followed the directions on the Wolff’s brand package — chicken broth, butter, salt.) Excellent stuff. Like Quinoa for the babushka set.

Buckwheat Pancakes

These were a bust, but it was definitely user error. One attempt is just not enough to get used to a new ingredient. Turned out greasy, rubbery and flat as a, well, pancake. Will try again. Even if my five-year-old did tell me NEVER to make pancakes like this again.
