Spelt is one of the oldest cultivated crops in history.
It's a variety of grain that is closely related to wheat. Packed with nutrients and high in fibre it is making a popular comeback on the health scene. The flour is perfect for bread and pizza baking, pasta making, in salads or as a rice alternative in its grain form.
I love using spelt flour and along with the combination of sun dried tomatoes and basil, this bread is delicate, yet tangy and delightfully delicious.
