Clearing out the weeds in my wild garden and I came across this - Spelt. I used spelt straw as cover for my garlic this winter and I guess there were enough stray grains to get some growth, I just love these 'finds'.
My wife commandeered it for a centerpiece which is fine as I have no intention of making spelt flour with it, too time consuming.

Very decorative! Like the clean lines. I eat spelt and use the flour for baking.

I have baked with spelt because my wife likes it so I make a loaf now and then when I am baking bread. I didn't know you could eat the grain whole though, how do you prepare it?

@Surfpirate You can treat it l;ike brown rice. It is a form of wheat, so cook it like couscous. I am also going to try and make kheer ( Indian rice pudding) but with coconut milk and pustacio nuts.


That is way cool!!

It's the little surprises that make gardening interesting, even when the raccoons ate half my corn it was still interesting but I prefer these sorts of surprises more.
