Looking at the packaging you should find it in the same isle as the quinoa and rice. Found online though at www.bobsredmill.com/organic-farro.ht
ml
that is a good brand too, I've gotten quinoa and such from that company that was good.

I never thought of putting it in tuna or egg salad. I haven`t seen farro at Walmart or my local grocery stores. Is it usually in the ethnic foods section?

I've never tried farro, but growing up near a mininite (sp?) community we had wheat berries. My favorite thing to do with them was to add them to tuna salad. Or egg salad. Yum.

The way I cook kale is to put two cans of chicken broth in a large kettle and get it to the boiling point, meanwhile adding some chopped garlic. I add the kale. As it heats it will wilt down into the broth. Then I cover it and let it cook until it is tender. When it is tender, I check to see if there's too much broth left and if there is, I turn up the heat and cook it fast, evaporating some of the juice. I serve it in a bowl topped with a little wine vinegar. If you don't like the vinegar, you may need a bit more salt, but I like the vinegar.

I've never tried it other than juiced, it has a good enough flavor and is packed full of nutrients. Do you add anything to it when you cook it?

I`ve never juiced kale but I love it sautéed just like spinach but kale takes just a little longer to get tender.

Anybody eat kale? I got some kale to juice, but it smells funky, almost like a chemical. I tried parboiling it and then shocking it before I juice it, that makes it a little better, but I still can't get over the taste, smell. Should I just toss the kale? My hubby bought 3 huge bags of the stuff so I hate to waste it.

deep fried is the only way I'll eat okra. But I was reintroduced to brussel sprouts here recently, with EVOO, salt and pepper and then grilled, oh my goodness they are good (as long as you don't cook them to long) I'm addicted! Some rosemary and maybe some thyme and they are absolutely yummy!

I there a oodles of people out there who like pan fried okra, or okra in stews, etc. But my only experience with it was that it was glue-y and I couldn't eat it. But years later, someone introduced me to deep fried okra, and I knew I'd found heaven....ok, just a facsimile thereof. LOL

"Ewww yuck! Disgusting!" That's how I feel about skillet fried okra. Give deep fried any time. Ok, maybe not 'any' time - deep fried anything isn't particularly good for you, but I indulge now and then. emoticon

Maybe Brussels sprouts with a salt-substitute would be good. Please let me know if you find a good recipe, and I'll do the same.

No, I don't. I steam them and eat them as is, with a smidgen of salt. I like them that way and don't find them bitter or particularly bland. I think I'll experiment a bit the next time I cook them.

Well, I slice it, dredge it in beaten egg, then flour (or maybe cornmeal) then bake at 350 degrees on a cookie sheet sprayed with vegetable spray (like Pam). I used to do the above, but instead of baking it, I'd fry it. sigh. Too much fat/calories. emoticon

How do I love to eat it? In a restaurant, as eggplant parmesan. Again, too fattening, but YUM! emoticon
