Farro pasta/expired pasta

Alex | Aug 22, 2003 03:31 PM

All I've heard about farro (emmer wheat?) is that it's an ancient grain, that it has a nutty flavor and that it's low-starch.

I saw some fancy boxes of organic farro pasta on sale today - probably because the expiry date is December 2002!

My questions are: 1) Does the expiry date really matter when you're dealing with dried pasta? 2) Do you like farro pasta as an alternative to regular durum semolina pasta?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
