From German, meaning literally “single grain,” Einkorn wheat was one of the first plants to be domesticated and cultivated. The earliest clear evidence of the domestication of Einkorn dates from 8,650 BC to 7,950 BC. Einkorn has a higher percentage of protein than modern red wheats and is considered more nutritious because it also has higher levels of fat, phosphorus, potassium, pyridoxine, and beta-carotene. It works well in hearth breads (up to 30%).

Also known as Farro Piccolo, Einkorn is a grain derived from Grano Farro, or Farro Grain. 

Farro is shaped like rice, with a golden brown hue and a nutty flavor. The texture gives a slight chewy feel once cooked. You can prepare Einkorn and other Farro grains easily, going well with a variety of meals. From soups and salads, to side dishes and hot breakfast, the possibilities are exciting.

    Amazing flours!

    As a pastry chef and bread baker, I have used a fair amount of different kinds of flour. Both the Einkorn and Rouge de Bordeaux are a true pleasure to work with. The flavors, textures (especially after getting the fermentation going) are some of the best I have ever experienced. I just wish I could have these in larger quantities so I could work with them full time. It would be worth the cost.

    Whole wheat berry scones.

    These turned out great. The pastry was fairly firm, but still flakey. And the tast was tremendous. Everyone enjoyed them.
