Farro: perlato (polished) and decorticato (spelt)

uwsgrazer | Nov 17, 2012 01:43 PM

I have a couple of Italian soup recipes, each of which calls for a different type of farro. How easy it is to find polished farro and spelt? I would imagine the latter is pretty common, but if a place sells faro is it then always the "polished" variety? Would Fairway or TJ's (less likely, I assume) stock both of these grains? I know, I can call Fairway but I'm not sure if they'll be able to tell if the farro is polished.

Thanks.
