To cook the KAMUT Khorasan: Bring 5 cups water and 2 cups Kamut to boil in sauce pan.  Simmer 45 min or until tender.  Drain any remaining liquid and cool.

To pop Amaranth: Heat a deep sauce pan on high. Add a pinch to test heat. If it pops the pan is ready. Add no more than 2 tablespoon of the whole grain to the hot pan. Shake the pan and pop the grain. This happen quickly. Empty and start again. 1/4th cup grain will yield 1 cup of popped.
