Spelt berries are one of my favorites and they seem to be popping up everywhere. They’re a little hard to describe to someone who’s never had them before. The best I can say is they’re similar to brown rice, but with a nuttier taste and and chewier texture. You can find them in the bulk section of most health food stores.
Cooked Spelt Berries
- Spelt Berries
- Soak the berries in enough water to cover them for an hour, or longer (even overnight). Drain and rinse.
- Add the spelt berries and water to a pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat, stir and cover.
- Gently boil for about 50 minutes, until all water is absorbed (may be slightly longer, but check to make sure it hasn’t dried out).
- Cooked spelt should be chewy and soft.
