Ingredients

Ginger Sesame Glaze:

Farro Salad:

Directions

  1. For the glaze: Combine the honey, sesame oil, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, onions ginger and some black pepper in a saucepan and cook the glaze until it thickens enough to coat the back a spoon, 10 minutes. Put the mixture in a blender and blend until all ingredients are incorporated. Put the mixture aside to cool.
  2. For the salad: Cook the farro in the chicken stock for 20 to 30 minutes, then set aside to cool, 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the pancetta in a pan until crispy, then set aside to cool, about 10 minutes.
  4. Drain the apples from the acidulated water. Combine the farro, pancetta, apples, peas, shallots and garlic in a bowl. Add the cayenne pepper and some salt and pepper. Add the glaze and mix thoroughly.

Cook’s Note

For the acidulated water, mix 1 teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar per 1 pint water. This mixture will help prevent browning on the apples. You can cook the farro the night before you want to serve it. When blending hot liquids, first let cool for 5 minutes or so, then transfer to a blender, filling only halfway. Put the lid on, leaving one corner open; this will prevent the vacuum effect that creates heat explosions. Cover the lid with a kitchen towel to catch splatters and pulse until smooth.
