How to cook with speltSpelt really is a cook's best friend. It's great for making bread and it can also make pastry with a wonderful, crisp texture. The nutty flavour of spelt makes everything taste good, and the flour behaves in much the same way as wheat, if not better so you don't really have to learn any new techniques.
I think it's always best to think of recipes as a guide, rather than a strict list of instructions to be rigidly adhered to, so it's important to practice using spelt in a variety of ways. It won't take long for you to get used to using it - and once you do, you'll never look back.
"Sharpham Park's pearled spelt is the perfect addition to the cook's store cupboard. It's versatile and can be used instead of rice in a variety of dishes including soups, salads and casseroles. It's high in fibre and nutritious so I know that I'm giving my family a healthy as well as a tasty meal."MONTY SAUL
