Farro is also known as kamut. It is a wonderful, high-protein, high-fiber grain, quite a bit larger than a kernel of wheat.

I haven't yet gotten my mind around farrow, but I know it's high time I did. This week I'm grappling with fava beans, next week it'll be the farrow. Maybe.

Farro, also goes by the name spelt or emmer. Has a wonderful nutty flavor, very popular in umbria. But farro or farro perlato is how it is labled in the US. At least some people who are gluten intolerant find it easier to digest than wheat.
