petit epeautre

/leu p-TEE EH-paut-ruh/

Einkorn. Einkorn is thought to have originated in the upper area of the fertile crescent between the Tigris and the Euphrates. Einkorn, emmer and spelt are often referred to as "the covered wheats", since the kernels do not thresh free of the glumes or the lemma and palea when harvested. It was one of the first cereals cultivated for food.
