I'd rather eat it from Russian soil than Chinese damned.gif

I don't trust anything that comes from there.

Ok I'm stumped. What is buckwheat and what do you make with it.

Im a southern Georgia boy and I just ask my wife what it is and she said no clue as well.

Next question would be. Will it ferment ?

Buckwheat is not a grain, is a perfect substitute for rice (only tastier) and real healthy too. I use buckwheat flour for all my flour needs. I'm sure it ferments hmm.gif Although I haven't tried.

We make wraps, burritos, pancakes and homemade Doritos with it, and no grains.
It actually tastes better than wheat.
