Guess the Grain

How well do you know your grains? Here are six pictures of grains and pseudograins. Click on each image to see what they are! Hints are provided.

Grain #1

Hint: Gift to the Greeks from Demeter. Also called dinkel.

Grain #2

Hint: A pseudocereal as it is not actually a grass. Colorful flowers. Great in waffles.

Grain #3

Hint: Whiskey, anyone?

Grain #4

Hint: Named after a historical region in modern-day Iran, though now cultivated in Montana.

Grain #5

Hint: Misleading name, as it is not a relative of wheat. Tasty in pancakes.

Grain #6

Hint: each grass flower only contains one grain.

So, how’d you do? ~ Valentine
