Rouge de Bordeaux Whole Wheat Berries

Rouge de Bordeaux is a 19th century grain once beloved by French bread bakers for its nutty flavor with hints of cinnamon. It is very unusual to find it as a whole wheat berry and it makes for a delightful addition to salads. The high protein that makes the wheat a favorite of bakers also makes it a healthy whole grain to substitute for rice or barley in all of your recipes. We are loving it as a If you’re a real over-achiever in the kitchen you can mill this grain at home for baking as the French do. We’re not that ambitious these days. We boil it, freeze it and toss in a salad with some fruit, nuts and greens. If I’ve got any left in the freezer on a chilly day I’ll add it to a soup. 

About The Farmer: Mendocino Grain Project

In the midst of the pandemic young farmer Rachel Britten took over the Mendocino Grain Project from the retiring founder. The Grain Project began in 2009 in an effort to provide their community with healthy grains and local food security. Rachel grows and mills grains like The Rouge de Bordeaux in Mendocino County, California and because they have the capacity to clean and process grain for other farmers the ultimate goal is to provide what is necessary so that other local farmers can join the effort to grow more staple crops in Mendocino County.
