Description

Organic Einkorn is the earliest variety of farmed wheat.

This ancient grain is an ancestor of durum wheat. Organic Einkorn was among the first cereals cultivated and is said to have been developed over 20,000 years ago in the Middle East.  It can be eaten as a whole grain or ground into a nutritious flour.

Einkorn is popular because it has a different structure to modern wheat varieties.  Some people find this much easier to digest than modern wheat which has been manipulated over the years.

If you like grain salads, then Einkorn makes a great base for a range of herbs and vegetables.  You can also grind einkorn down into a hearty flour which is great in rustic bread recipes.  Einkorn contains gluten which makes it a great baking companion, simply use it in the place of traditional plain flour.
