Recipe Notes

*How to prepare Puffed Amaranth | Take a pan and set on the stove at medium heat. Then add 1 Tablespoon of Amaranth at a time to the pan. Place a glass lid over the pan and heat until popped (about a min), being sure to shake the pan so that the amaranth doesn't burn while popping.

*Food-Grade Orange Blossom Water | May be purchased at a local health food store

As always, I strongly suggest using Certified Organic, Biodynamic, or Ethically Wildcrafted ingredients but especially in regards to rind bearing fruit. As this is where the most toxins from our conventional agricultural industry are stored | including herbicides & pesticides, just to name a few |
