Great stuff
 June 14, 2014
"1st time to ever try Quinoa and I purchased this because it was Organic & NON-GMO and has a very good price.
I've already gone through 2 of these and just got more which just arrived the other day and plan to buy more. so good - so why change.
These do not need to be rinsed & rinsed to remove any bitter taste. The reason I know is that the 1st 2-3 times, I didn't know you should rinse, didn't and cooked it - No bitter taste to me.
1 cup Quinoa + 2 cups Water (or whatever liquid you use)"
