Rustichella d’Abruzzo Farro Flour for Cornmeal Mush (aka Farro Puls), is obtained by milling TRITICUM DICOCCUM farro of our fields, which are controlled from the sowing to the harvest. In fact, the company Rustichella d’Abruzzo pioneered the process of the controlled production chain, starting in 2004 with the project called “PrimoGrano”, when the possibility of controlling cultivations from sowing was still under discussion in Abruzzo. Try it for making a farro mush with vegetables, cheese and cured pork meats, or combining it with our PrimoGrano “Pomodoro a Pera” sauce, adding meat (or liver) sausage, a bit of PrimoGrano INTOSSO monocultivar extra virgin olive oil and Pecorino cheese.

Speciality of PrimoGrano line, the local type of tomato called “Pera” (pear) grows in Abruzzo. It is unique and very different from all the other varieties of tomato. It has been cultivated for centuries and has very few seeds, it is very fleshy and weighs about 300-500 g. It is particularly suited for the preparation of sauces and its sweet and velvety taste, together with its low acidity, makes it much more refined than all other common types. To enjoy its organoleptic properties, we recommend using it “raw”, pan-frying it together with pasta and adding just a little bit of PrimoGrano INTOSSO Extra Virgin Olive Oil with some perfumed basil leaves.
