An ancient bristled grain that originated in the Middle East. Also known as emmer, this mother grain to all modern varieties of wheat is grown primarily in northern Italy and is prepared like rice to produce a plump, chewy berry that may be added into pilaf, salad, risotto, soups, pastas, breads, and crackers. The grain is closely related to spelt, einkorn, barley, and wheat berries.
