If I can find some spelt locally will give it a try in my WFO.

Good Afternoon,

I found Spelt in my local health food store, selling for almost $ 3.50 per Lb. After searching the NET, I ordered 25 lbs. for $34.00 + S&H from Vita Spelt They specialize in spelt products.

Happy Baking, Kris

Arrow Re: Spelt

yesterday whilst channel hopping, I came across a story of Spelt farmers here in Australia and they had a feature of a wood fired bakery in Syney that makes all the bread they can in 2 large ovens using spelt sourdough.
Did a search tonight and found the following link that may be of assistance to you and other members
I now need to seek out some for a trial batch of nutty light healthy bread.

Spelt's gluten structure is very different from standard wheat flour; be sure to not let it overproof!
my starter is based on spelt flour, btw and it seems it "remembers" spelt: whenever I make spelt bread, the levain goes CRAZY!

My mom has used spelt in pie crusts with pretty good success. I think she uses a crust with half regular flour and half spelt. Tastes a bit more rustic. Really good for apple and blueberry pies. Not bad with strawberry-rhubarb, either.
