Job's Tears, Adlay or Adlai is a tall ancient grain that is being rediscovered today. This grass has been used historically as a cereal grain in India and Asia. It grows well in higher altitudes where corn and rice won't. Hulled and cracked or ground into flour it used as a cereal or in breads. It is also hulled, roasted and eaten like peanuts. The Chinese still use the hulled grain like barley in soups and broths. The grains have been used to ferment ancient beers, and aged vinegar in Japan.
The grass grows from 3 - 6 feet tall, higher in more temperate climates. Can be perennial in the absence of heavier frosts. Crops usually harvested 4 - 5 months after planting by cutting plants at base and threshing seeds out, then hulling.
