Farina Cereal


When I first heard of Farina Cereal, I had no idea what my friend was talking about. Then she said it’s like Cream of Wheat®.

So what's farina? Farina is a milled cereal grain, usually made from wheat germ and the inner parts of wheat kernels called the endosperm.

Using farina is a very economical way to feed your family. A 50-pound bag of farina doesn’t cost much more than a 50-pound bag of wheat. It goes a long way.

How to Make Farina

  • Boil your water.
  • Add a dash of salt to the boiling water. It improves the flavor of the cereal.
  • Add dry farina to the boiling water. Don’t add too much farina because it absorbs the water and thickens up quickly.

How do you keep farina from getting lumpy? Stir the cereal constantly while heating. Adding too much of the dry farina at one time will also create lumps.

Add a little honey or brown sugar and then some milk or cream to the hot cereal.

Makes a delicious, nutritious breakfast.

You can make a cereal similar to farina. Grind your wheat using a hand grinder. The texture of the ground wheat is like cornmeal.
