I was more than pleased to be asked to do a review for Jovial products, including the 100% Organic Einkorn products. I had seen them in my Azure Standard catalog as something new they were carrying and really wanted to see what they were like.
I received a package with 3 of the newest products that Jovial carries: Einkorn Wheat Berries, Einkorn Flour, and Enkorn Pasta.
If you haven't heard of Einkorn Wheat before, you must pay attention. It is a ancient grain that has never been hybridized. You can substitute this grain in any of your favorite recipes using wheat. It is a tasty, slightly nutty, but golden colored with a buttery, rich flavor. Our family found this grain to be delicious!
We used the wheat berries to grind into a nice, buttery colored flour. It turned out perfect in my favorite whole wheat bun recipe. The dough was smooth and very easy to work with. It reminded me of a sweet dough with milk and butter, even though I did not add either of those to my dough. I told the family that we were testing some new flour in the buns we were having. They thought they were wonderful and didn't think they were 100% whole grain. They came out fluffy and airy, with a wonderfully yellow coloring. Jovial says that the golden color is rich with the antioxidant, lutein.
The pasta that we tried was also a big hit. It was not heavy, as other 100% wheat pasta can tend to be. It was slightly nutty, a light buttery taste and the texture of it was great.
I would encourage you to give the Jovial line of flours and pasta a try. It is a wonderful, tasty change and knowing that it is nutritious and healthy for you and your family is a huge, big plus.
