An ancient relative of durum wheat, Kamut - an early Egyptian word for wheat - has a history rich in myth. One popular story is that an American airman was given a few grains taken from a stone box in an Egyptian tomb following WWII.
Some of these found their way to a Montana farmer, who was able to grow the grain as a novelty crop. In 1977 another Montana wheat farmer, T. Mack Quinn and his agricultural scientist son obtained a jar of the wheat relative and continued its development. They recognized the value of the crop and coined the trade name Kamut.
It is similar (many claim superior) in flavor and texture to regular wheat, considered easier to digest, and is used successfully as a wheat substitute.
