spelt flour

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.

    Recipe 'March in the Dark' Taco Shells

    Photographed this afternoon in natural light! 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...
