  • Product Info

    We stone-mill this whole-kernel flour from organic Black Emmer, a rare ancient grain also known as Farro Nero. The word “farro” comes from pharaoh, as this grain was originally grown in ancient Egypt. When the Roman Empire expanded there, they brought this grain back to the continent, and it became known as farro nero, the “black grain of the Pharaohs.”

    Black Emmer is an extremely versatile flour, good in yeast or sourdough breads, as well as in cookies, pancakes, zucchini bread and other quick breads. At 11% protein, you can use Black Emmer Flour instead of All-Purpose in your favorite recipes, and bake something truly extraordinary — delicious and highly nutritious!

Black Emmer's sweet grain flavor makes for deeply satisfying bread. Most recently my Black Emmer and Light Rye loaf, powered by rye starter, generated raised eyebrow yums from the family. How can bread made at home possibly be this good?!

Absolutely delicious

I used half black emmer and half artisan flour. The loaf came out absolutely delicious. Flavor is out of this world. Highly recommend!

Delish sourdough, bread flour and Black Emmer

Made a loaf of sourdough bread using bread flour and Black Emmer. Typically my sourdough is made with bread flour and Eikorn. Made two loaves, which baked beautifully with a rich depth of flavor. Love it!! Is there a place here to post a photo?

Tried this mixed with Artisan flour the first time in a sourdough bread. Just can't get over how much better that bread was. It didn't last very long so it's on my list of repeats on a regular basis. Janie's flours are the best thing that ever happened to my oven.
