Take a look at this new webinar about ancient grains:
This webinar was recorded on January 8, 2013. In this webinar, a team of researchers from the NIFA OREI project Value-added grains for local and regional food systems discuss the so-called ancient grains–einkorn , emmer and spelt–including their origins and attributes, current and potential uses and markets, and what we know so far about how to grow them. The team will also give an overview of the project’s current work on developing best management practices for these grains, dehulling options, and identifying varieties and landraces with superior yield, flavor, or nutritional content. This webinar is for those interested in specialty grains, including farmers, consumers, bakers, chefs, millers, and other grain processors.
