Anyone else growing Salba
Gee im impressed with its rate of growth, as its putting the weeds to shame !
My question is apart from the nutrient rich seeds of this plant, can any other parts of it be consumed ? like in a salad
or even the newly germinated sprouts ?

Food preparation

Chia seed may be eaten raw as a dietary fiber and omega-3 supplement. Grinding chia seeds produces a meal called pinole, which can be made into porridge or cakes. Chia seeds soaked in water or fruit juice is also often consumed and is known in Mexico as chia fresca. The soaked seeds are gelatinous in texture and are used in gruels, porridges and puddings. Ground chia seed is used in baked goods including breads, cakes and biscuits.

Chia sprouts are used in a similar manner as alfalfa sprouts in salads, sandwiches and other dishes. Chia sprouts are sometimes grown on porous clay figurines which has led to the popular (U.S.) cultural icon of the Chia Pet.

Wow I had a feeling the Sprouts would be edible
A friend has an organic farm, we are both going to grow a large crop this coming spring for a seed/chaff harvest, which in turn will be used in the kitchen for the making of bread, cakes, and porrigde.
From what i gather the germ life force in the Salba seed only retains its high powered nutrient value`s for 16 hours after being crushed or milled into flour, so its important to keep the seed in its whole state until ready for use.
