The better staff of life. Lentz Spelt whole grain berries replace common wheat berries in recipes for pilaf, sprouts, and for hot breakfast cereal if ground. Milled Lentz Spelt berries make excellent baking flour.
Risotto-type dishes are easily prepared by cooking the berries for 30-60 minutes. Compared to rice, Farro risotto will always be slightly crunchy. For Mediterranean style salads, let the Farro risotto cool in the refrigerator, then blend with veggies and spices for Tabouleh. Farro grains add robust flavor to soups.
Spelt, (Triticum spelta) is the ancestral grain that takes your taste buds back to the dawn of agriculture over 8,000 years ago. The uptake of micronutrients in the soil is much higher in spelt plants than in commodity wheat. People with certain allergies to common bread wheat report that they can enjoy spelt without ill effects.
Lentz Spelt is raised from Foundation seed in the mineral-rich soils and sunny climate of the Columbia Plateau in the Pacific Northwest. Chefs and bakers take delight in the full flavor of this Farro. It's a natural grain, non-GMO.
