Scrabble Bingo of the Day: DHOURRA [n]

Dhourra is a type of sorghum, a genus of cereal grasses cultivated in warm climates worldwide for its edible grain. Sorghum originated in North Africa, but is a favorite crop in countries where arid soil exists and frequent droughts occur. The grains are mostly made into bread, but can also be popped like popcorn, used in liqueurs, made into syrup, used for livestock feed, and utilized as a source for ethanol fuel. It is also a substitute for wheat in gluten-free recipes. And as you can see below, there are many variant spellings of dhourra acceptable in Scrabble.
