Parched grain

Parched grain

Parched Grain is another term for wheat that is not fully mature. A common meal in the Middle East, as attested by the following quotes:

*"On the day after the Passover, on that very day, they ate some of the produce of the land, unleavened cakes, and parched grain." [bibleref2|Joshua|5:11|NASB|Joshua 5:11 (NASB)]

*"Now Boaz said to her at mealtime, 'Come here, and eat of the bread, and dip your piece of bread in the vinegar.' So she sat beside the reapers, and he passed parched grain to her; and she ate and was satisfied, and kept some back." [bibleref2|Ruth|2:14|NKVJ|Ruth 2:14 (NKJV)]

The grain has the same length of the normal grain, although somewhat thinner and darker with a green shade. It is served as a casserole hot dish, cooked with morsels of meat or poultry.
