FARRO - Kosher
FARRO - Kosher
Farro, also known as Emmers Wheat, is one of the first crops domesticated in the Near East. An ancient grain, Farro fed the Mediterranean and Near Eastern populations for years! Now considered a relict crop, Farro is a self propagating grain that does so by digging into the soil with its awns. The awns are spiky filaments that expand and contract in reaction to changes in humidity. This causes the seeds to burrow into the soil and grow. Farro is known for its ability to grow in poor soil conditions. Farro is a medium length grain that has a firm chewy texture with a nutty sweet flavor.
