"Farro perlato is the Italian word for emmer wheat. It is a wheat grain, actually a kernel that resembles barley from Popola di Foligno in the heart of Umbria. I have been looking for ways to incorporate this grain that has lots of fiber and protein into our meals. Enjoy this creation!"

vanilla bean, split lengthwise and seeds scraped
This was the first time i made anything using Farro. Overall It was OK, really Filling, smelled wonderful, but probably wont make again. I skipped part of step 3. After cooking and Draining the Farro I added the Milk, Vanilla beans and Sugar (i used 4 teaspoons), right back into the Farro Pot, and continued to cook on low for another 8 minutes. I Mixed the sugar and vanilla beans together so the beans would separate nicely.Also added a splash of pure vanilla. The Milk part of this tastes wonderful, and i really didnt mind the Farro..but the Farro itself really has no flavor, which makes everything kind of bland.. I wonder if you soaked the Farro in water with sugar, and vanilla overnight..if it would pick up any of that flavor.
The inital flavor of the sweet vanilla milk and nutty farro is great, then it goes very bland. I added a sprinkle of cinnamon and a drizzle of maple syrup to my bowl after eating a few spoonfuls of the original recipe and it's better. Farro is such a thick, hearty grain, it seems like it would be hard to flavor it. Maybe if it was cooked like rice pudding it would have more sweetness and flavor. Thank you.
It smells awesome with the fragrant vanilla but the farro itself is bland. I sprinkled with cinnamon sugar which made it a little tastier, we enjoyed the chewiness of the farro which I soaked for 12 hours. I would recommend 2 tbsps of sugar not 2 tsps. I remember my grandmother making wheat berries when I was a child, she used honey and dried fruit, that may be a nice addition to this recipe.
