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.

    Einkorn Flour

    We have used the Einkorn Flour and have ordered the whole wheat berries as we like to grind the wheat in our Vitamix. We kept the ground Einkorn Flour in the freezer and liked the way it made delicious and healthy soudough bread.

    Delicioso Polenta

    Blew my mind. Earthy, rich, almost nutty. Complex in-and-of-itself. Added a little butter, a little parm and romano. Paired with a red-wine rich, slow-cooked stracotta. But forget the rich beef. Everyone talked about the Oaxacan Green Corn Polenta.

    Great texture

    Great addition to Country Boule!

    Haven't taken the class yet. It's next month on Oct 23. Will be happy to fill out a survey then.

    Fantastic all purpose flour!

    I was a little concerned, since I normally buy standard organic baking flour from the grocery store, but this stuff is fantastic! I made the most wonderfully flaky biscuits and can't wait to get into more recipes.
