Freekeh is my number one grain. The wheat is harvested young when the grains are soft and full of moisture. The grain is then sun-dried before being roasted over an open fire for several minutes. Once cooled, it’s rubbed to separate it from the chaff. It can be purchased cracked or whole, and will often require careful cleaning to rid it of any stones.
