Anadolu Lezzetleri Freekeh Wheat (Firik) 500g
For millennia, Firik also known as Freekeh Wheat has been produced in the historically abundant Fertile Crescent. In modern times, its production continues in some small villages of Hatay, with knowledge passed from father to son. The best wheat for Firik is harvested in May from the Amik Plain, cut with sickles while still unripened. Then it's smoked and broken in a stone mill, giving it a unique flavor which it lends to both rice and stuffing.
Freekeh may sound new to you, but like barley and farro, this nutritious wholegrain has been part of the Mediterranean diet for centuries! And if you’re looking to change things up from your typical grain or rice, it’s time to try it. You’ll love its chewy texture and unique, slightly smoky flavor.
