Baking with grain from 5000BC

Spelt is a species of wheat that has been cultivated since approximately 5,000 BC.

Spelt was an important staple food in parts of Europe from the Bronze Age to medieval times. Now it survives as a relict crop in Central Europe and northern Spain, and it has found a new market as a health food.

This is included in our June flour box as it is a delicious and nutritious flour to bake with.
