    What is Amaranth, Red Garnet?

    Amaranth is generally a summer annual. With stunning red flowers, this Amaranth is not only edible but beautiful too.   This is a garnet colored sprout that has a wide variety of uses. Amaranth is very easy to grow, heat and drought resistant and grows exceptionally well if you have rich soil or compost.  


    Health Benefits of Amaranth

    Do you have grey hair? Amaranth helps to prevent premature graying, mainly due to the minerals it contains. It helps to lower bad cholesterol and also can reduce inflammation and ease pain.   Especially important for people suffering from diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.  Great for tackling high blood pressure and may even help prevent cancer.  Don't forget it is a wonderful source of protein.  

     


    Ways to Consume Amaranth

    Amaranth is a lot like quinoa as far as being a "protein packed" seed.  You can roast, pop, or boil these seeds.  Use as a breakfast cereal, or combine it with other grains.  Amaranth is a wonderful soup thickener because of it's gelatinous quality when cooked.  Cook the leaves of the Amaranth plant, similar to how you would cook/use spinach leaves.
