Spelt flour

Cooking with spelt flour is a great alternative to white flour and even, the all glorified, whole wheat flour!  Spelt flour is better for your body because it is easier for you to metabolize. The nutrients in spelt are protected better than in whole wheat flour because of its harder shell, and also contains more protein.  Spelt still contains gluten so it is not acceptable for those on a gluten free diet.  I love the taste of spelt flour because it has a nuttier taste, and would be great for making some sort of breakfast bread with fruit.  I guess I will have to make a loaf and find out!
