Prepare it

Rinse before and after cooking. Use cracked as opposed to wholegrain freekeh for a shorter cooking time.

Store it

Store freekeh in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.

Cook it

For cracked freekeh, use one part freekeh to three parts liquid.  Rinse it before adding to boiling salted water or stock. Return to the boil, cover and simmer for 15 – 20 minutes or until tender. Wholegrain freekeh needs more water and a longer cooking time, 35 – 45 minutes or until tender.
