Three Tips You Must Know When Baking With Spelt
1. Baking with spelt is similar to baking with other flours, however, due to spelt's solubility, bakers often notice that a little less water is required. When using your favorite recipes, it is suggested that you use 3/4 of the liquid that you normally would use. More liquid can then be added until the look and feel of the batter is satisfactory.
**Be sure you make note of what you do so you can repeat your successes**
2. Spelt has fragile gluten meaning that the initial mix time (when water is first added to the flour) should be no more than 4 minutes - although 3 1/2 minutes is ideal.
3. Mix the flour/liquid enough to get the dough to become homogenous (smooth). Once mixed, you can treat the dough as though it were made with regular wheat.
Here are some recipes you can expect to find in your email when you fill out the form above.

Here are some other uses for spelt: Serve cooked spelt berries as a side dish substitute for rice or potatoes.
Hot Whole Grain (Spelt) Cereal:
As with all grains, before cooking spelt berries, rinse them thoroughly under running water. After rinsing, soak spelt in water for eight hours or overnight. Drain, rinse and then add three parts water to each one part spelt berries. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for about one hour. Enjoy!
Oh, and don't forget to add your favorite treats such as honey, raisins, blueberries, apples, cinnamon, or anything else you would normally put on hot cereal.
