  • 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: My new "all-purpose"

On the recommendation of Cecilia, I tried Black Emmer flour in a spice cookie recipe, and was astounded at how much richer they tasted. Since then it has become a staple in my baking. When making my sourdough bread (I usually use Turkey Red), there is always a big quantity of leftover levain. I never waste that, and make a batch of rolls for vegetable sandwiches, or pizza, using Black Emmer and mixing in a little High Protein for reducing the stickiness and creating more loft. They are delicious. What a wonderful treat to have this flour.

Black emmer flour.

Made sour doing with this. It adds a beautiful nuttiness to the dough. Love it.

Black Emmer!!!!!!!

I still don't have the words to describe the flavour profile. All I KNOW is that in a loaf of Levain with black pepper and chopped walnuts, it is incredibly soothing and deep. This loaf is 40% king Arthur bread 30% janies Red fife and 30% janies Black Emmer.74% hydration. Doubt this loaf sees the sunrise tomorrow.

I mix it with other heirloom flours when making bread. It adds a really nice depth of flavor whenever I use it.
