- 6 c. fresh cucumbers
1 c. sweet pepper, sliced thin
2 onions (into rings)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. celery seed
2 c. sugar (I use 1 1/2) works fine
1 c. white vinegar
Mix well. Put in refrigerator, let stand overnight.
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup amaranth
Combine water, the amaranth, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat for 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Makes about 1 cups.
Variation with Mixed Tiny Grains: Mix teff, amaranth, and quinoa, the latter thoroughly rinsed, and cook as described.
