This is the first book ever written strictly on the subject of the lesser-known Jewish law found in the Torah (Bible), concerning eating only "yashan" (literally, "old grain"), also spelled "yoshon". In our modern times of highly processed foods, this can be a challenge. It covers everything one needs to know in order to fulfill the "Mitzvah of Keeping Yashan", (also known as the "Prohibition of Chadash" or "new grain"). This book is also a valuable resource for those in the kosher food industry who would like to reach a market of those with a stricter standard.
Full of beautiful color photographs and clear explanations, it is sure to help educate and provide enjoyment at the same time. Whether you just want to learn more, or you would like to take on this mitzvah, "Vintage Grain" is for you. It tells you everything you need to know, from how and when to start, to knowing what is yashan nearly at a glance. It also thoroughly explains how to use the lengthy annual publication "Guide to Chodosh". With tips, charts, resources, and lists, you too can "reap" the benefits of "Vintage Grain".
