Maskal Teff Brown Grain $7.95

This ancient Ethiopian and Eritrean grain is a staple of their rich culinary culture.

The fine grain is about the size of a poppy seed and notoriously high in calcium, and it can be used for everything from porridge to pilaf. When ground into flour, it’s also used to make traditional injera bread pancake-like, fermented bread that complements the aromatic spices found in the cuisine.

While it would be inappropriate to position this as “Ethiopia's polenta," it can be used in very similar ways. It makes a lovely, creamy base for braises and roasts as well as a nutty addition to hearty stews. You can also form the grain into a log shape, chill it, slice it and then fry it in a manner similar to polenta. In the sweet realm, teff grains make wonderful morning porridge. Swirl in milk or cream, top with a pat of butter and a pool of maple syrup or a sprinkling of raw sugar. It's also wonderful when prepared with warming spices such as cardamom and cinnamon.
