I am walking past the grain bins in the Bulk department, scanning the labels for grains that are not so familiar to all of us, when my eyes spot Kamut, a grain with an unusual sounding name. It originated thousands of years ago in the Middle East in the Fertile Crescent, which reached from Mesopotamia to Egypt, but for some reason Kamut stopped being cultivated and was not rediscovered until the last century. Fortunately now it is grown here in the U.S.—good news since many of us prefer to eat foods from this country as much as possible, rather than those imported from countries far away.
