January 19th, 2014: Jon and Greg discuss farro, a category of ancient, low-gluten wheat first cultivated in the Fertile Crescent. Farro comes in three varieties - most farro imported from Italy to the U.S. is the emmer variety - and several forms, distinguished from one another by how much bran was removed from the grain.
