Petite Crimson Lentils are petite, delicate, quick cooking, and slightly sweet to the taste. Thought to have originated in Turkey, they have been the foundation of Near Eastern cuisine ever since.
The biblical story of Jacob and his brother Esau, revolves around the bartering of Esau’s birthright as oldest son for a simple bowl of lentil stew (Genesis 29-34). It was described as a “red stew” and is assumed to be a thick soup made of red lentils.
Great for Indian masoor dal recipes, pureed soups, and ready-in-minutes side dishes. Blend them in as a colorful and healthy addition to cooked rice, or add them to pasta sauce for a meatless Italian meal.
Petite Crimsons cook in 5 to 10 minutes, transforming into golden pearls when completely done.
Timeless Natural Food is located where the Great Plains of America unfold from the majestic Rocky Mountain Front into the renowned Golden Triangle, Montana’s most productive agricultural area. Here the cool, dry environment is ideal for producing the high quality, certified organic cereal grains, pulse crops, and edible seeds for which Timeless has become famous.
Timeless was created in 1987 by four organic farmers to market the production from their own farms. Now we help support dozens of organic family farmers throughout Montana and the surrounding region with soil-building crop rotation options and new markets for their quality crops.
The hallmark of Timeless has always been the introduction of unique and highly nutritious heirloom specialty grains like our Black Beluga® Lentils, Purple Prairie™ Barley, and Black Kabuli™ Chickpeas.
While we remain a small, farmer-owned company in rural Montana, our bulk grains are marketed world wide. And our award-winning, 100% organic Timeless Natural Food retail line graces the shelves of quality grocers across America.
