A note from the author:
Long ago in the Fertile Crescent, as civilization was beginning to form, grains of different shapes, textures, and tastes pushed their way out of the ground. They were farmed, enjoyed, and brought to new locations. As mass-produced hybrid wheat hit the market, they all but disappeared. A resurgence of new farms and a renewed interest has brought these grains back full force.
Ancient grains are so named because, unlike today’s common wheat, they have been minimally changed over millennia. In this issue, we explore these grains through profiles of Emmer Farro, Kamut, Einkorn, Buckwheat, Freekah, Oats, Amaranth, Sorghum, Millet, Quinoa, Teff, Spelt, and Rye.
