Treat seeds before sowing
Pollen-coated seeds (seeds of minimal size): not soaked, just sowing directly.
Tiny seeds (e.g., calendula, ten o'clock flower, amaranth) are sewn directly, not soaked.
Small seeds (big sesame seed size), softshell, easy to germinate (vegetables in general): can also be sown directly, without soaking.
Small seed (to the size of a sesame seed), hard shell (coconut, tomato, chili, cinnamon): soak for 5-8 hours.
Sprout fast in the summer heat, though rabbits love the leaves. Plant extra!
I was excited to see this online. This vegetable is delicious. You could make this a salad, or you could also cook it with meat or mix it with soup.
Lots of seeds arrived, but it will be spring before I know if they all germinate. It arrived right on time and very neatly. No complaints.
I sowed the seeds in compost, and they appear to be liking it so far. Most, if not all, of the seeds germinated.
Almost 100 percent germination rate.
1. Contains tocotrienols
Tocotrienols are a form of vitamin E that may reduce cholesterol as well as your risk of heart disease, according to a study published in the 2014 edition of the journal Nutrition & Metabolism. The study also found that tocotrienols may be protective against cancer and have anti-inflammatory qualities.
2. Reduces stroke risk
Amaranth leaves are a good source of potassium. Having ample potassium in the body helps move oxygen to the brain, which stimulates neural activity and cognitive function while reducing your risk of stroke. Potassium can also improve brain function by maintaining electroconductivity in the brain.
3. Reduces hypertension
Amaranth leaves also contain magnesium, a mineral that combines with potassium to reduce your risk of hypertension, which is protective against heart disease, according to a 2007 edition of the journal Lipids in Health and Disease. Magnesium also has a host of other benefits including increasing energy, calming nerves and anxiety, relieving muscle spasms and aches, and preventing osteoporosis.
4. Improves digestion
Amaranth leaves are a significant source of dietary fiber which makes them helpful at reducing constipation. They're also easier to digest than other leafy greens like kale, which often need to be massaged or cooked slightly before eating to improve digestibility.
5. A good source of iron
We’re always looking for good sources of iron, especially in the plant-based world, and amaranth leaves don’t disappoint. They help prevent anemia in those that are iron deficient.
6. Delicious fermented
A traditional African amaranth green preparation involves fermenting the leaves and jarring them to be eaten in the off-season. Fermenting the greens is doubly healthy because you get to enjoy the inherent healthfulness of the greenery as well as the benefits of fermented foods. Fermented foods are good for digestion because they contain probiotics or good bacteria. Fermenting the entire crop is a good way to use the stems as well. All you have to do is add the amaranth leaves to a mason jar and then cover them with filtered water, half of the sliced onion, and two tablespoons of salt. Store for a few weeks in a cool place, opening the jar every few days to release built-up gases. Keeps for three to six months in the refrigerator.
Amaranth leaves are versatile greens that can be eaten raw in a salad, added to a stir fry, soup, or a simmered dish like curry. As mentioned above, they can be fermented and jarred to be eaten year-round. Add amaranth leaves to any place that you would traditionally add spinach as they have a similar texture and appearance.
