Buckwheat is in season!
Wait until the white flowers turn rust colored, then collect the blossoms by rubbing them between your thumb and forefinger letting the crushed flowers drop into your palm.
On a white piece of paper, sort out the sticks.
Grind up the seeds and chaff into a flour using a flour or coffee grinder.
Add it at a ratio of 1/4 cup buckwheat flour plus 1 3/4 cup of your favorite pancake mix for Wild Buckwheat Pancakes! Adjust ratio if you want more/less buckwheat flavor.
