Corn groats and flax seeds
In addition to excellent flavor, corn groats possess a huge number of beneficial properties. Nicotinic acid and beta-carotene contents help to restore the nervous system, muscles, and tissues, as well as facilitate visual acuity. The cereal also contains various minor nutrient elements and amino acids, including tryptophan and lysine, necessary for life support and good spirits.
Corn porridge is used as a standalone side dish and to garnish meat and vegetable dishes, as well as a soup supplement. It is also used to cook a traditional Transcarpathian dish – banush.
As corn groats are very light, it is not so easy to cook porridge from it. Young chefs often either burn the cereal or boil it soft to a smooth jelly.
To cook porridge, August TM offers you to use corn groats in portion cooking bags made of perforated film. It will make the process of cooking porridge easier: protected by a film, the cereal will not burn, will not stick to the bottom of the pan, and will not fall apart when boiled.
All you have to do is to pour 1 liter of water over the portion bag in the pan and put it on fire. After it starts boiling, cook for 15 to 20 minutes over a low heat. When ready, the porridge will fill the entire bag. Open the bag along the tear line and pour its contents onto the plate.
The August TM cardboard pack includes 4 portion bags of corn grits weighing 70 grams each and a beneficial bonus – a bag of flax seeds.
Flax seeds are used as a dietary supplement enriching any dish with additional amounts of vitamins and minerals.
