Italian Pearl Emmer of Tuscany - 1.1 lb (500g)

Tuscan Farro must be cultivated according to the local tradition dating back to centuries ago. The harvest takes place in summer with the same threshing machinery used to harvest other varieties of wheat.

During threshing, the sheaves of Farro are detached from the stem, but the caryopses, or grains of wheat berries, remain enveloped in the glumes which enclose the grains tightly, thus the name 'dressed grain'.

The Farro is once again an appreciated ingredients thanks to its excellent dietary characteristics and the beneficial effects that its fibers have over the digestive process.

Suggestion: It's a grain rich in starch, thus particularly suitable for salted pies, however it is more often used to prepare delicious soups. Paired with beans and vegetables for instance, it makes a simple soup with outstanding perfume and flavor. It's also excellent in cold salads and in the preparation of Farrotto.
