When I saw the pack of pre-cooked farro @Trader Joe’s I had an instant flash back of the “colivă” my grandma used to make.
After more research I realized that what I needed for colivă was wheat grains not farro, but I decided to give it a try and see what happens. 🙂
1 cup farro
2 cups water
4 tbs brown sugar
(I should have used more than that, but I I am afraid of sugar :D)
1/2 tbs rum extraction
1/2 tbs vanilla
1/2 cup pecan meal
1/2 cup pecan in really small pieces
Steam the farro or cook it on very low heat for 30- 40 minutes.
Let it cool down and combine it with the rest of the ingredients.
It seems like my childhood foods are hunting me this days, but it’s really healthy and tasty.
