Organic Einkorn Flour

Especially when fermented, Einkorn's natural gluten is easier to digest if you are sensitive to modern wheat gluten. Why? It is not hybridized like modern wheat. Einkorn evolved from pure wild einkorn from the dawn of agricultuer. If you have a gluten allergy, test if einkorn is safe for you under a doctor's supervision. If you have celiac disease, do not eat einkorn - it has gluten.

Baking Tips and Recipes
Einkorn is more flavorful and easier to digest than wheat but has a different gluten quality. To optimize your baking experience, we suggest:Use fermented sourdough starter to enliven with vitaity. Wild yeasts are the same microorganisms teeming in a healthy human digestive system. Use living spring water, not chlorinated tap water.
No-Knead Bread - Einkorn dough may be sticky at first because einkorn absorbs liquids slower than wheat. Oil your hands for easy kneading. Excessive kneading does not develop greater gluten. Time does. Knead until the dough is hydrated and responsive with spring back. Do not “let the dough rise until it has doubled in size then punch down”. If dough rises too much, it will deflate in the oven. Under-proof rather than over-proof. After kneading and shaping, place overnight in the fridge in a bread pan covered in a plastic bag then bake the next day. Place a pan of water in bottom of oven to enhance a crisp, golden, caramelized crust with the irresistible aroma of freshly baked bread.
Pastries and Cakes - Substitute 1/4 of the einkorn flour for tapioca flour for enhanced crispness. Einkorn has less starch than wheat so add an extra egg or egg white to batter for a lighter cake.

Cracked wheat, known as 'frumenty', was a staple dish in ancient and medieval cuisine. Traditional recipes add milk, eggs, almonds, currants, honey, saffron and rose flower water. Frumenty was served with meat as pottage, with venison, fish or in broth-like risottos. Boiled cracked wheat topped with yogurt was made in ancient Persia, and still used in soup in Greece and Cyprus (trahanas) to Turkey (tarhana).

"We know God loves us because He gave us beer." Ben Franklin
Which came first - bread or beer? In the ancient Mesopotamian Epic of Gilgamesh, when the wild man Enkidu drank einkorn beer, ‘his heart grew light, his face glowed and he sang out with joy’. Ancient naturally brewed beers not only lightened the heart, but were brewed with healing herbs and even contained antibiotics.
How was ancient beer made?
Ancient peoples discovered 'beer' by tasting sprouted grain bread that had been left in water to ferment naturally. Gradually the art of producing beer evolved using sprouted grain bread boiled with dates or honey and fermentation. Later the bread stage was skipped, and the grain was soaked in water, sprouted, dried (malted), mixed with water sweetened with dates or honey and left to ferment naturally. Ancient ‘beer’, more like an unhopped ale or gruit, was a thin oatmeal-like porridge-brew with about a 3% alcohol by volume. You can recreate this ancient brew using the recipe for Einkorn KVASS above.
Brewing Basics: Sterilize all pots and bottles thoroughly. Simmer malt (ground dried sprouted hulled grain) in water for about half an hour (mashing) The sweet liquid tea-like ‘wort’ is then boiled and filtered for up to an hour. Herbs, spices, sugar, honey or maple syrup can be added to taste. The wort is rapidly cooled, then yeast is added. As the wort slowly ferments at room temperature, the sugars are converted to alcohol.
The Talmud (Pesachim 107a) describes four different types of beer; Shechar (grain beer), Pirzuma (date beer), T ’ainy (fig beer), and Asni (berry beer). Date beer was especially enjoyed in Babylon (Baba Batra 96b). Beer was used as a medicinal tonic to preserve herbal extracts in alcohol. Hops were added to balance the sweet malt with bitter astringency and as a preservative. Fermented herb beers, known as ‘gruit’ in Europe, were common in Ancient Israel. Even fermented milk, common in nomadic societies, was enjoyed. Cohanim priests who drank too much fermented milk were prohibited from serving in the Temple if they were inebriated (Talmud, Krisus 13b).

of intestinal mucosal toxicity of Triticum monococcum in celiac
disease patients , Daniela Pizzuti, Department of Surgical and
Gastroenterological Sciences, Via Giustiniani 2, IT-35128, Padua,
Objective. The treatment of celiac disease is based on lifelong withdrawal of foods containing gluten. Unfortunately, compliance with a gluten-free diet is difficult mainly due to its low palatability. In evolutionary terms, Triticum monococcum is the most primitive cultivated wheat. Conclusions. Data show a lack of toxicity of T. monococcum gliadin in an in vitro organ culture system, suggesting new dietary opportunities for celiac patients to safely eat einkorn.
