Brown flax seeds.
Flax (Linum usitatissimum) refers to the versatile annual plant that produces both the fibers used to make flaxseeds, also known as linseed. Flax was first cultivated in the Fertile Crescent as a fiber crop between 4,000 and 2,000 B.C., but from the very beginning people realized the culinary potential of flaxseeds. Today, certain varieties of flax are grown as oilseed crops, while others are grown to produce non-food grade flaxseed (or linseed) oil that is used in wood finishes, paints, coatings and industrial supplies.
Brown flaxseed adds flavor, texture and nutrition to recipes ranging from baked goods like bread and granola to breakfast cereal, oatmeal and salads. Whole brown flaxseed has a light, nutty flavor and delightful crunch. It is easily ground into flax meal using a spice grinder, and can be substituted for some of the flour in baking recipes or stirred into sauces or stews to add a bit of flavor and a dash of extra nutrients.
