Saskatchewan is full of beans
A CBC listener called in to tell us about a great source of Saskatchewan grown beans: Northern Quinoa Corporation, of Kamsack. Its primary product, quinoa, is an edible grass seed native to the Andes in South American. According to the company website, quinoa is high in protein and other essential nutrients. The on-line store also sells lentils, chickpeas, barley, spelt, flax, spices and a whole lot of beans. Check it out.
