Farro may be an ancient whole grain, but we’re bringing it back! It’s time to add a new grain to your cupboard classics! Yupik Organic Farro is an ancient whole grain that we recommend be soaked for a few hours (up to overnight) before cooking. For every cup of farro, use 2 ½ cups of water (or stock) and cook for approximately 40 minutes. Nutty in flavor, farro is chewy and firmer in texture than rice. Farro is ideal for both baking and cooking applications. Buy Organic Farro by 500g, kilo, or case to keep your cupboard well-stocked with this pantry must-have!
