    Well I made it with water as the recipe says and it was ok. If you have ever cooked brown rice it has the same sort of smell, I added a small amout of sweetner and it was quite nice. I think I could get used to the taste, bit like eating brown bread at first you didnt like it but as you know its good for you you get used to it. I tried a bit in with yogurt and had it cold and it was great, and as it has so many health benefits I am gonna stick with it. It is not a grain at all but a fruit seed from the Rhubarb family.And best of all its FREE

    1 and half cups water to 1/3 cup grits. simmer on hob for about 10/15 mins stirring occasionally. add sweetner or fresh fruit etc. Have to say it was very filling and lasted hours which for me is a first. Recipe says it serves two.

    Sorry this is probably a dumb question but is it actually called buckwheat porridge? or just buckwheat? :eek:

    Also do you need to soak it or anything before use?

    I saw it in a larger Tesco yesterday beside the wholefoods - and it's just called buckwheat. It's a wholegrain like cous cous so you would need to prepare it before you eat it.

    'Kasza Gryczana'- this is its Polish name printed on the boxes of buckwheat available in the international sections of Asia. Otherwise, ask in Polish shops. Good luck.
