ANCIENT GRAINS

Farro is an ancient grain with a nutty, slightly sweet flavour and a chewy texture. It stays tender and distinct when cooked, deliciously "al dente". Our farro is hulled to allow faster and easier cooking while leaving much of the bran intact to preserve its nutritional properties and ensure a delightful chewy bite, which will hold even when cold. Use in soups, potages, stews or salads.

It has an appealing natural colour, nutty taste and maintains a crunch even when well cooked. It's super flexible, fast and easy to cook. I'm including it in salads and will try it in wraps next.
