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.

    sprouted wheat bread

    I bought to try out for sprouted wheat bread. It did not seem as suited for sprouting as the hard white spring wheat I have been using. It tended not to sprout as quick and got sticky and balled up after draining. i was not able to grind it with the equipment that I have been using. I don't want to give a bad review, It probably makes a good flour but didn't work for my intended use.

    Great addition to sourdough

    The addition of Einkorn flour to my sourdough mix gave it a great flavor. I read not to use too much, not over 30% total, and it came out perfectly.

    The golden brown boules came out great.

    We used BSM Einkorn flour for the first time to make 100% Einkorn sourdough boules. The golden brown boules came out with a thick and crunchy crust on the outside and a soft tender crum on the inside. Thank you BSM for bringing us this ancient grain freshly milled to our door.
