i made this this morning. i was very curious after seeing everyone else's post and pics about it. and i must say, i have to agree....bland, bland, so bland. so i thought i would try a different method. i soaked over night, cooked it this morning in a little salted water. i have a jar of leftover vanilla beans that had been soaking in vodka, to make my vanilla extract. they've been in that jar which has been empty of extract for quite some time. i threw one of those beans in the pot while cooking the farro. when it was done cooking, i drained it, added the milk and some homemade apple pie spice, maybe a tsp of brown sugar, and the same vanilla bean. i thought (duh) it would thicken up like my rice pudding does. then i had one of those "duh" moments when i realized,there's no starch to thicken it up, LOL. so i took it off the stove, put it into my bowl, drizzled a little pure maple syrup over it and had it like that. i love the chewiness, and the sweet milk (what was left of it), and enjoyed it enough to finish it, but i won't be making it again.
