Cooking Times for Grains

How many of use remember how to cook all the different grains we have stored.  Of course, if you use the grains all the time it’s easy.  But if you only use them once in awhile it’s hard to remember the ingredient ratio.  I usually divide a portion of my grains into jars or packages for daily use since they normally come in large bags so that we get used to having them in our diet..

Anyways below, you will find a chart that can help you.  I will paste the chart and recipes etc. that I find in my handy file folder binder.  The file is full of cards, bits of paper and my guest book.  You are probably wondering what a guest book is, well when I talk to my friends  which most of the time it’s about food (so sad) I find out what they like and dislike and make notes for when I invite them for dinner.  I also write down the menu I am having so I don’t repeat menus they have had.  This comes in handy when it’s been awhile since they have been over.

Eating more gains and vegetables is good for your bodies, so experiment with some grains you haven’t tried.

Hope this chart helps you.

    I appreciate this chart however even within the USA it can cause great confusion let alone in other Anglophone countries.

    1. Wikipedia states that a CUP in the British Commonwealth plus Latin America plus Lebanon is 250 ml, that is, a quarter litre.
    2. In the USA there is the customary cup of half a US pint, i.e. 236 ml, 14 ml less than in 1. above.
    3. In the USA there is the legal cup for nutrional labeling, of 240 ml
    4. There is the old Imperial cup of 1.2 US customary cups or 284 ml. Some recipes still use these Imperial cups.

    However note the complex and confusing discussion on this subject on the Wikipedia Talk page.

    Is there any way of knowing what the Source for this table meant by “cup”, please?

    As the amount cooked goes up, so do the small millilitre differences get big.

    King Arthur Flour is a US company and would use the US measurements. There is very little difference in US cups and it should not make any difference in your cooking.
