Part of the tribe of wheat varieties, these organic rye berries are highly nutritious and flavorful, with a nutty bite. These rye berries can be cooked whole or rolled like oats, or used to spawn edible mushrooms. These rye berries are also commonly used to make beer, whiskey, or vodka. They are also perfect for your home mill to make rye flour for breads and crackers. Delicious and versatile, rye is a staple in kitchens of the northernmost countries, as it is a hardy crop, and contains as much as 20% or more of the essential nutrients and minerals our bodies need, including niacin, fiber, protein, and B vitamins.
