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.

    Looking Forward to it

    can't wait to use it

    Spelt Sourdough

    This spelt was just wonderful with my sourdough. I had a high spring and well balanced crumb. I use a 20% spelt and 80% typical high gluten flour for the dough mixture. I love the mild sweetness of this spelt as it balances well with sourdough.

    Best Scones

    Love the scones from this flour, I’m all set for Christmas

    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!!!

    Great flour, great recipes

    The chocolate cake recipe produced some of the best tasting cupcakes I have ever made (in the past 50 years of baking). The crumb & moisture were perfect. The rye bread & sandwich loaves turned out beautifully. The sour dough starter became activated within a few hours! Unfortunately my technical skills & patience didn’t do your flour justice. I’m looking forward to trying more of your recipes & more of your amazing flours. Thank you!

    Awesome bread !

    I am making delicious bread with your flour !

    Try Adding Quanah to your Sourdough

    One of my sourdough baking friends made a loaf with Barton Springs' Quanah added. It was perhaps one of *the* most delightful and delicious loaves of sourdough I have eaten, both from home baked goods to professional bakers. I wanted to bring this goodness into our own home, so I ordered a bag. It felt good to know I was supporting Barton's mission with the grain preservation and continuity. But let me tell you - the quality of the quanah flour was gorgeous! So fresh, and for my recipe, which calls for 455 grams of flour, I used 100 grams of quanah with the rest being bread flour. It was sooo delicious, and will likely be a regular part of our hearth. The quality of the crumb, the quality of the taste, it really has been a joy!
