We've teamed up with our friends at Grain to bring you farm-direct dry goods with a story — stories of real people growing food. Shira & Janna share our values & philosophy and source Canadian products exclusively, choosing only the best they can find, from farmers and processors they know. To learn more about them and their story and meet the farmers, please visit their web site.
First cultivated in the Haute-Loire region of south central France, French lentils are known for their peppery flavour, slate-blue and green colour and firm texture. They hold their shape well, making them the go-to lentils for soups and salads. Like all legumes, French lentils are packed with nutrition and are an excellent meat alternative.
Our French lentils come from Dwayne Woolhouse at Crestview Organic Farms near Assiniboia, SK. Cook using 1 part lentils to 3 cups water. Bring to a boil and cook until soft, about 45 minutes. Drain.
