Palestinian Freekah

$10.90

Freekeh is quick to cook and easy to use. Freekeh is green roasted wheat which is processed by farmers in the field. It’s produced by harvesting the wheat early when it’s still green. Afterwards it’s roasted in open fires in the field, cleaned from the husk, dried and then crushed. The wheat for the freekeh comes from small farmers in the Jenin area who depend solely on farming to make a living. It adds some heartiness and an intriguing smoky flavor to your favorite soup. Use it as a stuffing for poultry or squash, or serve it as a side dish with a dash of olive oil or a pat of butter.
