The people of Northern Europe and Russia use rye as their principle bread and cereal grain. Although rye has always been a minor grain in the United States, with the current interest in whole grain eating, its use has been on the increase. The rye berries range from a golden hue to sage green. Often mistaken for moldy grains, the sage green color is unique to rye berries. Rye is a rich and versatile source of protein and dietary fiber, especially a type of fiber called arabinoxylan, which is also known for its high antioxidant activity. Rye is high in selenium, phosphorous, magnesium, copper, zinc and protein. Rye Berries can be cooked as a hearty breakfast cereal or ground in your own mill for the freshest rye flour available. The whole berries can be used in place of other whole grains like wheat, spelt and brown rice for a new twist on your favorite dishes. Rye can also be sprouted to use in salads and sandwiches.

rye starter
I used my berries by grinding them into flour and adding it to a rye starter. The starter is the best starter I have used. I have used all types of starters and this rye berries starter is the best tasting and smells the best. I make rye bread from my berries and hands down it is the best ever!
