Farro is a new grain I have discovered. I made this delicious dish with snap peas today.
“What once was old is new again” is so true with all the ancient grains which are tasty and nutritious additions to our meals.
Some say Farro is the original ancestor of all wheat species.
In ancient Rome, farro was a staple food. Today it is still widely used in Italy and has been grown for generations by Tuscan farmers.
Farro can be used in stews, salads and casseroles.
One picture shows the cooked grain before I made the dish.
