    Very nice! I knew about the leaves, but had no idea about the grain. I will seek it out. Thanks.

    It's a bit like a cross between Bulgar Wheat and cous cous but a little firmer. It's great as a filler in curries and casseroles.

    There are a few recipes too:

    Amaranth is also easy to grow in the UK and very pretty in the garden.

    You plant it in the spring, preferably start seeds off in pots or modules indoors with gentle heat, then plant out when danger of frost is past in a sunny place. There are lots of varieties available, from the shorter garden flower known as 'Love Lies Bleeding', to tall varieties. They're very impressive-looking!
