Borstvete is Swedish for "bristle wheat" which is an apt description of this bristly headed wheat.

As a whole grain, Borstvete is an excellent muesli when steamed and "buttery with herbaceous overtones" when boiled. It is often milled into flour for use in bread-making.

A line of Borstvete wheat - Gotland Borstvete is aboard Slow Food's Ark of Taste.
