Procedures:Farro (a type of wheat, also called emmer) was among the first cereal crops to be domesticated in the Middle East. It’s the “mother grain” to all modern wheat dating back 17,000 years. Farro was the conerstone of the Etruscan diet, and was also the standard ration of their eventual conquerors, the Roman legion.
