Einkorn is a very old wild grass that predates human agriculture. It's the oldest of all ancient grains and native to the Fertile Crescent (modern-day Israel to Iran) where it still grows wild. Dating back over 10,000 years, Einkorn is short (70cm) and has a relatively tiny kernel. It is low yielding but can survive on poor, dry marginal soil where other grains often can't. Einkorn is a popular choice due to its sweet, mildly nutty flavour & tolerability for those with wheat allergies. Many people who suffer from non celiac gluten sensitivity find they can digest Einkorn because of its simple gluten structure compared to modern wheat.

How to use: Kernels are the seed of the wheat grass. Try planting in your garden or sprouting. The most popular use is to grind into flour for baking. Kernels can be cracked or coarsely ground and added as texture to recipes or boiled for a porridge. The entire kernel can be cooked like rice (boil 2 parts water 1 part kernels for 30-40 minutes) and eaten by itself or added to salads, yogurt or desserts.
