BULGUR WHEAT, FINE - Kosher

BULFINE-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 regular whole wheat berries which has a mild, nutty, earthy taste. Bulgur comes in a fine (this product), medium or coarse texture. While Bulgur is known for its texture and use in Tabbouleh (a dish containing mint, tomatoes, lemon juice, scallions and parsley), it has quickly grown in popularity as a meat alternative in meatloaf, meatballs, chili, stuffing and more! 

Ingredient Statement:

Fine Bulgur Wheat. (Contains Wheat, Gluten)

Our Bulgur is a #1 Fine Bulgur.

There are varying degrees of grades for bulgur. Grades may range from the following:

 #1 is Fine

#2 is Medium

#3 is Coarse

#4 is Extra Coarse

Bulgur is a great base for thick soups and chillis. Use in pilafs, as a meat substitute, or as a substitute for rice as a dinner accompaniment. Substitute soaked bulgur with cracked wheat in any recipe. Fine Bulgur acts as an extender; mix with meats, vegetable and other grains to make meat loaves, vegetable balls and burgers.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

Pour 2-1/2 cups boiling water over the grain and steep for 15 minutes. 

One cup dry yields 3 cups cooked.
