What is farro and how to use it?

Farro is a grain with a history dating back about 10,000 years. Our farro has been pearled to remove some of its bran layers, thereby drastically reducing its cooking time. Because it remains al dente after cooking, farro is popular in soups (it does not get mushy). With its nutty flavor, it is also great in salads.

How to cook farro (basic instructions) 

  • Add 1 cup of farro to 2-1/2 cups water. Season to your liking.
  • Boil, then reduce heat and simmer, occasionally skimming water, for 30 minutes or until the grains are fully cooked to tender and slightly chewy texture.
  • Drain any excess water.
