Carla Bartolucci / EINKORN
Discover the many uses for einkorn, an ancient and healthy form of wheat that proves perfect for people with gluten sensitivity, in these 100 recipes--from savory breads to sweet cakes--for the grain and its flour.
Einkorn is one of the earliest forms of cultivated wheat, with wild strains that can be traced all the way back to the Fertile Crescent. Because of its lack of high molecular weight proteins, many in the gluten-free crowd have found that they can still enjoy einkorn without experiencing the same allergic reactions or uncomfortable side effects that comes with conventional wheat. Now Carla Bartolucci, founder of the Jovial line of organic heirloom foods, shares 100 recipes for einkorn-based foods. Baking with einkorn produces much more flavor than regular wheat, and allows gluten-free home cooks to make recipes they can enjoy without aggravating any gluten sensitivities or overhauling their baking techniques. In these breads, crackers, breakfasts, desserts, pizzas, and other main dishes, you'll see how this versatile grain can be the key to cooking as you would with conventional wheat.
