One of the first grains discovered, farro is the ancestor of modern wheat. It is said to have sustained the Roman legions as they conquered Europe.

Farro is a cereal grain in which, unlike wheat, the husk adheres to the grain, just as in barley and oats. Its fiber content therefore is high and so are nutrients such as Vitamin E and protein. When combined with legumes, as in many Tuscan recipes, farro forms a complete protein source. Rustichella d'Abruzzo Farro is 100% whole grain and semi-pearled.

Like various other grains, farro requires soaking (but only 20 minutes) before incorporating into your favorite recipe. Whole Grain Farro is excellent in soups and stews or mixed with fresh vegetables to make a cold salad.

Each bag of Rustichella d'Abruzzo Whole Grain Farro weighs approximately 1.1 lb. and is imported from Italy.

We recommend it for Pamela Sheldon John's Farro Salad in Cucina Povera.
