Spelt is an ancient grain, a distant cousin of wheat, but with a unique gluten structure making it easier to digest. It has a delicious nutty taste and spelt flour is perfect in all recipes where wheat flour is used... However, it's also fantastic as a rice replacement, as in this spelt risotto mix. During cooking the grains plump up to around twice their size and take on the full flavours of the additional ingredients. It's thought that Spelt originated in the Middle East, and since then has been much prized for its health properties: it's a great source of protein, is packed full of wonderful nutrients and is low in saturated fat. Spelt is harvested with its tough outer husk intact, locking in all the goodness, and we only remove that when we come to clean the grain in our dedicated spelt mill. Check out our website for the full story! The History of Sharpham Park. For well over 1000 years, Sharpham Park has had a rich agricultural heritage, sustaining Abbots, Kings and Noblemen. Now the family home of Roger Saul, founder of the British designer brand Mulberry, the farm is set like a jewel in the heart of the rich, lush pastures of the Somerset Levels. The spelt fields have 6 metre margins and the hedgerows are only cut every other year, allowing wildlife such as hare, lapwing, dormice, bees and ladybirds to shelter and forage for food all year round. No pesticides, herbicides or harmful chemicals are used on any of the spelt grown on the farm. In partnership with... Bowel Cancer UK. Save lives.
