Roasting buckwheat

Hi,

Does anyone know a good way to roast buckwheat at home? Also, I want to grind the kasha to a coarse consistency - is there a good way to do this without buying a very expensive grain mill?

Thanks,
Jakki

Try just spreading it on a cookie sheet and toasting it on low in your oven until it is the desired colour.

As for grinding it...do you have a coffee grinder? Try that. Just wipe it out carefully before and after.

JT, I did not quite get what you mean by "grinding kasha to coarse ..." You can grind it to medium or fine, but coarse? Or do you mean you get it whole groats? If so, why do you not consider just byuing the consistency you want? Is it not available where you are?

I don't think he'll be answering Charlie, he last posted in 2005.
