Organic Einkorn is the most ancient wheat and includes many essential minerals. It has a nuttier flavor than modern standard wheat and is a great alternative for flour, cooked as a side dish or as a salad ingredient.
Einkorn helps strengthen bones with its calcium content, protects your body’s cells with zinc and supports immunity with vitamin B-6 and vitamin A. It’s also a good source of iron and magnesium.
Making Flour from Einkorn Wheat
Organic Einkorn flour can be used for a variety of recipes and is best ground at the medium to coarsest setting on the Lee Household Flour Mill. All stone mills can have potential challenges with grinding gluten-containing grains at the finest setting due to the stone gumming up. To make flour, simply pour the grains into the hopper, select your desired coarseness and mill until the hopper is empty.
Cooking Einkorn Berries
Bring two parts water and one part grain to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for thirty to forty minutes or until the water is absorbed.

I had to go gluten free in 2008 when I discovered that any food containing gluten would cause my back to go out. I lived in constant pain for 5 years until I made that connection. Since that discovery, any time my back has gone out, I could find the hidden gluten in a food I had eaten the previous day. At the recommendation of my chiropractor, and to my surprise, I tried Lee Organics Einkorn and had no problems. My favorite dish is a “cream of wheat” style I make by running it through my Lee mill on 3/4 coarse setting and then boiling it in 4 parts water to 1 part einkorn for about 20 minutes. I use 3 cups water to 3/4 cups einkorn and it’s the perfect amount for me and my 3 year old son.
Thank you for this amazing product!
