A golden oldie full of golden goodness! Wheat is thought to have originated in southwest Asia over 12,000 years ago. Unlike processed wheat where all the layers are stripped away, hulled wheat is a wholegrain that retains the three important parts of the grain: the germ, bran and endosperm. (Only the inedible hull is removed.) It can be used in a multitude of dishes, from soups to desserts and is delicious as a rice alternative in risotto! When it’s cooked it becomes sweet, tender and nutty, lending itself to a number of tasty dishes.
