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!!!

    Delicioso Polenta

    Blew my mind. Earthy, rich, almost nutty. Complex in-and-of-itself. Added a little butter, a little parm and romano. Paired with a red-wine rich, slow-cooked stracotta. But forget the rich beef. Everyone talked about the Oaxacan Green Corn Polenta.

    Great texture

    Great addition to Country Boule!

    Haven't taken the class yet. It's next month on Oct 23. Will be happy to fill out a survey then.

    Fantastic all purpose flour!

    I was a little concerned, since I normally buy standard organic baking flour from the grocery store, but this stuff is fantastic! I made the most wonderfully flaky biscuits and can't wait to get into more recipes.
