s is for spelt
alot of people ask me what is spelt flour and why i use it. so i thought it would be a good idea to give some background and info on these types of ingredients that i use since some are not commonly used.
spelt, also called farro in italian is s popular grain in a lot of european cooking. it is higher in fiber and protien than regular whole wheat flour as well as high in those wonderful mood boosting B complex vitamins. this is also a wonderful flour for people with gluten sensitivites.
it has a nutty flavor and can be used to replace wheat in all kinds of recipes. once open i refridgerate it in a sealed bag to prevent it from going rancid and staying fresh longer.
arrowhead mills is my favorite brand of organic spelt flour and can be readily found at most health and natural food stores.
