Hi Everyone, I found a fantastic recipe for Sourdough Buckwheat Crepes on the following site: www.wholehealthsource.blogspot.com
It is very delicious and so easy to make. I use 3 cups buckwheat. I also found that 5 teaspoons of sea salt is plenty. You can ferment the mix for longer than 12 hours without a problem.
I use my homemade raw milk whey as the fermentation starter.
These are very easy to cook and work well with grated zucchini, corn and chilli added, you can also add a beaten egg for extra protein. They are also delicious cooked plain then eaten with hummus or avocardo dip. They cook well with a teaspoon of ghee or coconut oil melted in the frypan beforehand.
Hope you give these a go and enjoy them. Cheers. Meredith.
Thanks for sharing. Took me a while to find the recipe.Here is the direct link: http://wholehealthsource.blogspot.co.nz/2010/07/real-food-xi-sourdo...
I grow buckwheat for the first timemyself. Just 10 sqm. I tell you when it was in flower it was covered with bees. The whole 10 sqm were buzzing. It is so easy to grow. But I think my challenge will be to harvest and husk it. Buckwheat is also a brilliant green manure.
thanks for that recipe, have made buckwheat crepes in the past, but not fermented first so will give it a go.
I got 1kg of buckwheat seed from terracefarm recently to grow as a green crop, can't wait for it to flower in the two patches I have sown so far. .
a friend told me she uses the young plants at two/three leaf stage as a microgreen, they are delicious.
Hey Kali yes,buckwheat as micro greens is delicious. 1 kg of seeds is good for about 40 sqm. How do you plan to husk it? Do you have an idea?
40 sq m...I wont be planting it all at once!
I don't plan to husk it, I was going to dig it back in and leave that tricky stuff to the experts...same with sunflowers, just too fiddly to do on a small scale. but I do have a grain hand mill so perhaps could try this method http://www.ehow.com/how_8449925_husk-buckwheat.html if I felt so inclined... more likely if I do save some seed I will probably just use it as microgreens or chook food.
