WE ARE THE FARMERS – or the growers – of the grain sold on this website. We grow it, have it cleaned, bagged and then ready for your purchase. We have a limited supply and we only sell what we grow here. We do not usually source from other growers. Harvest is in September, typically, and cleaned grain is ready to be shipped out in October.
WHAT IS KHORASAN?
Khorasan is an ancient grain related and compared to Durum wheat. Khorasen is a NON-GMO grain.
Khorasen, like spelt, is more easily digested, more water-soluble, and tends to be more friendly with gluten-intolerant people. Sometimes people who are suffering from Celiac disease are able to tolerate Khorasen – but each body is different, and I do not guarantee that it will work.
IN WHAT RECIPES DO I USE Khorasan Wheat?
Khorasan is best used in noodle or pasta recipes or even in cakes, donuts, and pastries. It doesn’t make good bread when used by itself. Personally, I do use it in bread when I mix it with spelt and even hard white wheat — that is my favorite wheat combination.
OUR LOCALLY GROWN KHORASAN:
We sell our Idaho-family-grown khorasan in 50 pound bags of whole kernels (berries). Khorasan tends to be higher in protein and many minerals, especially selenium, zinc, and magnesium compared to modern wheat. It also tends to have a higher amount of lipids which gives you more energy than carbohydrates!
You will need a grain mill to make flour with your khorasan wheat. When you grind it into flour, it is naturally light in color (actually yellow-ish) and ready for baking. Khorasen flour is best kept in a cool, dark place to maintain its excellent nutrient value and it is best to use it as soon as possible.
Since it is better to mill your own grain into flour, you might need a grain mill, please check out the quality mills we carry.
