Flax Seed will add
a little extra flavor to your recipes.
|Flax seed will
add a pleasant nutty taste to any recipe. The attractive, round
reddish-brown seeds of flax add flavor, extra texture and good
nutrition to your breads, cakes, muffins, and other baked goods.
That’s why flax has been used for many years in multi-grain
cereals and snack foods. Flax seed also will give you many
vitamins that are otherwise hard to get. When cooking, be aware
that flax seed can be used instead of the oil and shortening
called for in a recipe. When substituting flax seed in a recipe,
use a three to one ratio. For example, if a recipe asks for
one-third of a tablespoon of oil, use one tablespoon of flax
seed. Flax seed is also very easy to store. Unlike seeds from
other plants, flax seed can be stored for up to a year.
Tips on finding cheap Flax Seed.
If you are considering going on a flax seed diet, try to find flax at a
cheap price by checking health food stores and stores that sell
gardening supplies. Some stores may sell flax seed at a greatly
reduced price if the flax seed is more than half a year old. Be
aware that although it might not be as fresh as you would like,
flax seed less than a year old still will still give you the
benefit of flax seed oil. If you buy flax seed wholesale and
want to preserve its freshness, use a coffee grinder to grind it
down to powder, which will increase its longevity.
