Barred Girdle and Emmer

Emmer Flatbread on Brander

The barred girdle is being placed on the fire to cook the emmer flatbread.  Emmer is an ancient form of wheat that requires pounding and grinding to remove the grain from the husks.  Emmer, like spelt, has more protein and less gluten than modern wheat.  In addition, the gluten structure is different so that some people who have gluten sensitivities can consume emmer without problems.
