amaranth means: A pseudo-cereal grain that was cultivated by Aztecs and other related cultures for over 5,500 years. It has been virtually unknown since the past 500 years. However, a handful of farmers in the United States are currently growing it commercially. It is a good source of protein, and it will be more widely available than other grains. You can either cook it in liquid, or pop it. They have a mild sweet taste and can be used as spinach. Amaranth can also be called Chinese Spinach (een Choy), callaloo, and Callaloo.
