What happened to Red River cereal?
So, my mom knows I like the cereal and she gave me some extra boxes of Red River. When I got them home and put them in my storage, I noticed the boxes were a bit different size than the ones I already had but didn't think anything of it.
However, when I made the cereal, it was totally different than normal. I learned from calling them that they no longer make it in Canada but buy it from the U.S. and if you try to follow the recipe instructions, you will end up with seriously watery cereal with a weird, unlikeable texture.
1. I can't eat this anymore and have a few boxes that I would like to find an alternative use for. Any suggestions? I have a grain grinder and was thinking worst case scenario, I could make multigrain flour and use it for breads, etc.
2. What is the closest substitute to Red River cereal? I was going gluten-free for a while and tried one of Bob's Red Mill cereal products but it is a bit like comparing apples to oranges. My preference is not stone-ground cereal because sometimes you end up with hard, bits of stone in the cereal. I believe Red River met this criteria. Not sure about what other manufacturer's might make an equivalent product.
