ORGANIC HEIRLOOM HOT CEREAL BLEND (Treasure Life Farms)
Hurry up! Sales Ends In
Ingredients: cracked, wholegrain heirloom Marquis, 1907 (hard red) & Ladoga, 1887 wheat berries, cracked heirloom Prima rye berries, whole heirloom golden flax seeds
Production: Many of the heirloom grains have not been grown for over 100 years or have become almost extinct before Ben and Claudia at Treasure Life Farms decided to follow their commitment to biodiversity and sustainability. On their farm, they cultivate their crops in the rich alluvial soil in a "rotation and fallow" method, carefully rotating seedbeds, ensuring sufficient nutrient buildup through cover cropping.
Grains are allowed to ripen at their own pace and are then harvested, cleaned, and stored in wooden granaries on their farm - all contributing to superior taste and nutritional value. Flours are freshly milled in small batches on a centrifugal mill which pulverizes the grains so finely that it requires no sifting and without any temperature increase, preserving optimal nutrient density of the flour. This pastry flour has been minimally sifted in order to obtain a lighter quality flour.
Qualities: this organic, high-quality gluten heirloom flour, is rich in soluble and insoluble fiber, protein, complex carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients:
- High-quality gluten: not all gluten is created equal. Since most people have been exposed to GMO gluten but not been sensitized to the ancient genetic composition of heirloom grains, even gluten sensitive individuals often have excellent tolerance to these heirloom grains.
- Heirloom or heritage plant varieties are open-pollinated varieties that have been cultivated and passed down sometimes for thousands of years. They have evolved over time by natural or human selection exhibiting superior taste and complex aromas as well as a diverse mineral profile and higher vitamin contents. They also play a crucial role in protecting our continued food supply through preserving genetic diversity.
- Stovetop: bring 1cup water per 1/4cup cereal and a pinch of salt to a boil, stirring frequently. Keep stirring and reduce heat to a gentle simmer until desired consistency (about 15min). Remove from heat and let it rest for a couple minutes before serving. Enjoy!
- Microwave: place 1cup water per 1/4cup cereal and a pinch of salt into a microwave-safe container, cook on high for 10-12min. Let it rest for a couple minutes before serving. Enjoy!
Storage: keeps well in a sealed container in a cool, dry, and dark location (optional)

Red River replacement .
I, too, purchased this to replace that Red River cereal we used to enjoy. I'm still working on how to cook it to get the best texture. It's a little too crunchy for me. So far, I am boiling it the night before and letting it sit overnight. Then it only needs to cook for a few minutes in the morning.
Treasure Life’s Great products
When we shop at OM we surely think of the Treasure Life products. Love the fresh taste and knowledge that we are eating some ancient grains! Recommended.
Organic Heirloom Hot Cereal
I have been looking for a replacement for the discontinued Canadian Red River Cereal for months. This is it: it is a slightly finer grind but cooks the same and has very similar taste.The only negative: cost $12.95 for 2 lbs (which is good),but $19.95 for CPS Expedited service (which is bad as it took 12 days to travel 500 miles).
former fan of Red River cereal
I tried this as a replacement for the Red River cereal I used to buy, until the manufacturer was bought by a U.S. company, moved to the States and finally closed. Now I like this product from Treasure Life Farms even more.. I cook it as I did Red River cereal - 1/4 cup of cereal with 1 cup cold water, and pinch of salt bring to the boil. Simmer for 11/12 minutes, stirring occasionally, then covered for 2 minutes off the heat. I add a bit of plain yogurt and my own mix of seeds, nuts, and dried fruit. Tastes great! So glad my internet searching netted this product.
