Spelt (Triticum spelta; Triticum dicoccum), also known as dinkel wheat or hulled wheat, is a species of wheat cultivated since approximately 5000 BCE.
Spelt was an important staple in parts of Europe from the Bronze Age to medieval times; it now survives as a relict crop in Central Europe and northern Spain, and has also found a new market as a 'health food'. Spelt is sometimes considered a subspecies of the closely related species common wheat (Triticum aestivum), in which case its botanical name is considered to be Triticum aestivum subsp. spelta. It is a hexaploid wheat, which means it has six sets of chromosomes.

In Sweden there is a great tradition of foraging thanks to the (‘Allemansrätt’), or Outdoor Access Rights as it is known, which gives you the right to roam the countryside freely. You have the right to walk, cycle, ride, ski and camp on any land with the exception of private gardens, near a...
This is super simple. Hardly a recipe at all! The bread has a pleasing nutty taste and puffs up in the pan quite well. This recipe makes 4 x 7 inch flatbreads (or 2 larger flatbreads).

Well in theory in it meant to be orange juice, but my OH came home with Orange, Mandarin and Grapefruit juice, so I had to make it with that!
So I have taken the recipe directly from here (http://www.myfoodandhappiness.com/thyme-olive-oil-protein-spelt-bread/) - but I will say I will make...

This recipe is a spin off from the one posted by @winterybella. I tried the recipe using oat flour and although it did work, I wasn't keen on the rather 'mealy' feel in the mouth, that the flour had. So I tried a lot of substitutes (I won't bore...
