Recipes using whole spelt flour?
« on: December 31, 2010, 06:35:45 PM »
My wife brought home some organic whole spelt flour from a local health food store and I'm hoping someone will recommend a use for some of it.I'm thinking of trying it in my next bread dough batch,maybe 1 part spelt flour to 3parts bread flour? but would like to try it in pizza dough too.I just don't know anything about its uses so don't know what type of pizza dough(or recipe)that spelt flour would be appropriate for.
    Thanks so much and have a safe and wonderful New Yrs everyone!!!!

The best way to use spelt is to soak up oil leaks from your car.

I'd try it if I could get it here in Mexico. Heck I'll try anything twice. Make pizza, report back.

I was just making a joke.  All I know about it is that was the precursor to modern wheat.
