Spelt, also known as “Dinkel” or German wheat, developed through the spontaneous crossing of the wild grasses (Aegilops squarrosa) and Emmer between 6000 and 5000 BC.

Spelt contains more protein, fats and crude fiber than wheat and also has large amounts of Vitamin B17 (anti-carcinoma). It also contains special carbohydrates which play a decisive role in blood clotting and stimulate the body’s immune system so as to increase its resistance to infection.

With a sweet, buttery, nutty flavor, Spelt is a great inclusion to any bread recipe.

    Spelt won the waffles

    I love making waffles with the spelt flour. When they are cooking up, the amazing aroma fills my house, bringing everyone to the kitchen in the morning. Additionally, you can smell this sweet, nutty grain all the way outside too!
    I won't use anything else to make waffles.

    also good with regular bread yeast

    many of the comments use sourdough but I made mine with regular baking yeast. Mix with the regular flour 1:1 but prepare starter dough (1 cup of Spelt Flour, 1 cup of warm water, 1/4 teaspoon of yeast, mix in a bowl and cover with plastic foil) 10-12hours before and use that starter dough in the breadmaking process. Works great!!! Super taste, nice texture, great to work with. Flours do not need much water, I used the regular amounts and was way too much. Easy on water. Dough loves it warm, I placed mine in the car for rising...
    No more store flour!!!


    WOW!!!!!!!! Hey, Texans, this is the best spelt, been adding it to sourdough bread recipes as well as my starter and it is kick ass, never buying from any other mill if I can help it!

    New Favorite Shirt

    This is my new favorite shirt. They are very soft and comfortable, although they are a tad bit long for my taste. Not a big deal by any means - I've had it two weeks and already worn it 3 or 4 times.

    Yecora Rojo

    I bought the Yecora Red to make some artisan sourdough & it came out so delicious. It has a wonderful nuttiness with great complex flavors. Just love it. Can’t wait to try some of the “00” sifts.

    Just what I wanted!

    After having blue cornbread on a trip to Colorado, I looked everywhere for the cornmeal to make it after returning home to Boston. Luckily I found it through Barton Springs Mill, and it arrived a few days after ordering. I've already used it several times for several different recipes. It's awesome, and exactly the flavor and quality I was looking for. Highly recommend!!

    What a taste

    I baked already two sourdough loafs with the flour and the taste and smell is amazing.

    Helped with colic from breast milk!

    I have three kids and breast fed all of them and I always had to watch my wheat intake otherwise my babies were gassy. I thought for whatever reason it was the gluten but then I learned that it’s actually how the wheat is made and what pesticides were used that upsets the babies and the mamas through the breast milk. So this third time around I have been searching for an organic wheat flour that wouldn’t upset my 6 month old’s tummy through the breast milk and I say success! I have baked muffins and cakes with this flour and have no complaints! If you want a fluffy result I’d recommend sifting as I would with any flour. Very happy and will buy again
