What's more, it turns out that there's pearled farro (doesn't need to be soaked) and unpearled farro (does need to be soaked, though one source says twenty minutes and another says overnight.
I tried searching on recipes for that brand, and found someone who was happy with a Cooks Illustrated recipe, but actually seeing the recipe involved a paid subscription, which was a bit more than I cared.
I couldn't find anything about how to tell the difference between pearled and unpearled farro just by looking.
My executive decision is that I will soak my farro.
In case you were wondering, it seems to be an old form of wheat which makes something like a wheat risotto (risotto is made with rice that releases starch as it cooks).
You'd almost think I was fascinated with the stuff, or at least Facebook is now trying to sell me farro. Has something like this happened to anyone else?
At the same time, I consistently comment on and upvote fat acceptance posts, but Facebook keeps trying to sell me diets.
