Farro is ancient whole grain wheat with a nutty flavor and firm, chewy texture. We pearl these high-quality, light brown cereal grains to reduce cooking time.
Add 1 cup of Farro to 2-1/2 cups water. Boil, then reduce heat and simmer, occasionally skimming water, for 30 minutes. Drain excess water.
Storage & handling
