  • 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!

First Time working with Black Emmer flour

This was my first attempt using Black Emmer flour. I loved the smooth texture of the flour. My loaf turned out beautiful and full of flavor, but pretty heavy. I'm giving myself grace to try different recipes and not get discouraged. I think mixing Black Emmer with an all-purpose flour may help. I'll take suggestions. So excited to try it again.

Earthy goodness

Love using Black Emmer in quick breads and sourdough breads. It lends a subtle earthy, sweetness to anything you use it in! My family loves it. Makes a great sandwich loaf using the recipe on the JM website, too.

Deep flavor, good for breads with pickled things

Hello! Your Black Emmer flour is so beautiful and unique.... thanks for bringing back the experience of a truly special moment in time in the ancestry of wheat. We made a sourdough bread using 40% Black Emmer (of total flour) with nigella seeds (black sesame) and pickled lemons and it was wonderful. What a flavor profile and texture. Thanks again!

I love cool stuff!

I used the Black Emmer flour in a sourdough shortbread with parmesan and sundried tomatoes. It was awesome, but I'd like to try another recipe where the flour itself is the star. I love trying new things for my family and customers.
