Anson Mills Farro Verde
Farro is an old world grain with a complex, nutty flavor. From protein-packed grain salads to hearty winter stews and savory brunch staples, its possibilities are endless. A staple in the Mediterranean diet, farro nourishes and informs many Italian dishes, where it is used like arborio rice, adds tooth to soups and crunch to desserts, or forms the basis for salads.
Here at SHED, we source early-harvest emmer, also known as farro verde, from Anson Mills in South Carolina, to use as the basis of a salad with crema di lardo. Read more about this old world grain here.
