Our split emmer farro is an ancient style of bulgur wheat. It is traditionally known as Farro Spezzato in Italy. Split emmer farro cooks in 1/3 the time (20 minutes) and yields a light, airy cooked grain with tremendous flavor and soft texture. It is a great substitute for bulgur wheat. Instead of being cooked and dried like traditional bulgur wheat, our split emmer farro is a raw, whole grain, minimally processed to garner its tremendous nutritional properties. Use in cold salads, add to soups for texture, or sauté with olive oil, fresh shallots, and herbs to compliment a main dish. It is a perfect addition to stuffing’s, pilafs, and performs great as a soup thickener. Cooking instructions included on the package.
