Triticum (Adjar) Armenie 1kg.
[Adjar (Armenia); Zanduri (Georgia); Parinj (Persia); Triticum timopheevii | wild Triticum araraticum]
The wild version of this grain grows all through the Southern Caucasus and from souteastern Turkey through northern Iraq to northwest Iran. The domesticated form is grown mostly in Georgia. It is used in Georgia, Armenia and parts of Persia (Iran) to make pilafs which are highly regarded, and is also ground into flour to make bread. Adjar is pretty easy to find in the ethnic markets here in Los Angeles, particularly around Glendale (the Western capital of Armenia), but may be hard to find in other regions. Duckwizard, who identified for us exactly what "Adjar" is, suggests Khorasan Wheat as a decent but not exact substitute.
