Perfectly Cooked Sorghum
Every couple of years, a new grain comes around that isn’t really new, but it feels a little different and exciting. I heard of sorghum watching Top Chef: Charleston (which has inspired me to want to move to Charleston, like for real.) I could not find sorghum at any store, so of course I found it on Amazon.
Here’s a little more info on sorghum.
I’m putting this sorghum method up now because I’m working on a fun, spicy, and creative way to use to new/old grain.
Total Time: 1 hour and 10 minutes
Yield: 6 Servings
Difficulty Level: Easy
1 ½ cups dry sorghum
6 cups water
- Put the sorghum into a colander, and rinse well.
- Add the sorghum, water, and salt to a medium sized pot.
- Bring it up to a boil, and boil for 5 minutes.
- Bring it down to medium. Cover, and continue to cook for 55 minutes.
- When water is almost dry and at the level of the grain, reduce heat to low/simmer.
- Cook until water dries completely and the grain has puffed up. Stir.
