BULGUR WHEAT, COARSE - Kosher

BUL-10

Description:

Bulgur is a grain from the ancient Middle East; from there it spread quickly around the world. Bulgur is wheat berries that are partially hulled, steamed, then cracked and dried. Often confused with cracked wheat, both look the same, however, Bulgur is steamed (precooked) unlike cracked wheat. There are two kinds of Bulgur, one is made from soft white wheat berries (more delicate taste), and this product, which is made from hard red winter wheat berries which have a mild, nutty, earthy taste. Bulgur is gritty and flaky and used primarily in Tabbouleh or Tabouli (a dish containing mint, tomatoes, lemon juice, scallions and parsley). Bulgur is also commonly used as a meat substitute.
