Product Description

Organic spelt flour wholegrain
A delicious nutty tasting flour, suitable in all recipes where wheat flour is used

What is Spelt?
Spelt is an ancient grain that has been grown in Somerset since the start of the Iron Age.
It's a cross between emmer wheat and goats grass, with a delicious nutty taste, and is different to common wheat in that the body finds it easier to digest. This is due to its unique brittle gluten structure, which means some people with a wheat intolerance may find spelt a suitable alternative (please note: spelt contains gluten and is not suitable for diagnosed coeliacs). Spelt is a great source of protein, which your body needs to maintain healthy blood and muscle structure. It's also packed full of natural iron and potassium, essential for cell regeneration and for maintaining stable blood pressure.
The History of Sharpham Park
For well over 1000 years, Sharpham Park has had a rich agricultural heritage, sustaining Abbots, Kings and Noblemen. It's 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.
And we are proud to say that this flour is fully organic, which means no pesticides, herbicides or harmful chemicals are used in growing our spelt, allowing nature to take its own course.

Instructions

For the Perfect Banana Loaf
You will need
130g Unsalted butter (melted)
3 Large ripe bananas
25g Clear honey
2 Large eggs
127g Dark brown sugar
170g Wholegrain spelt flour
10g Baking powder
30g Chopped pecan nuts (optional)
Pre-heat the oven to 180c / Gas Mark 4.
Lightly grease and flour dust 400g tin
Place eggs and brown sugar into electric mixer and whisk to a light ribbon stage.
Sift spelt flour and baking powder into a clean bowl; tip the remaining un-sifted part of spelt back into the dry mix. This helps to aerate the mix.
In a separate bowl, combine together melted butter (tepid), honey and roughly mashed bananas.
Combine all 3 parts together: start with butter mix to flour, followed by egg mix. Do not over mix! Spoon evenly into tin, sprinkle with chopped nuts, and place in middle of the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes.
Test by inserting a skewer to the centre of the loaf and then removing. The skewer should be clean. Remove from oven, rest for a few minutes before removing from tin and transferring to a cooling rack.
Tips: Try using this same recipe for banana cupcakes; cut the cooking time down to about 15 mins, and decorate with glacé fruit. For a touch of spice, add a pinch of cinnamon to the flour when sifting.

excellent in soda bread

Works really well in soda bread - either on its own or in a 50:50 mix with white flour. Lovely nutty taste.

Best Spelt Flour

Great spelt flour but very often out of stock!

Rating: 5 star out of 5

great flour, awesome packaging

I've substituted this and the similar white flour for wheat in a number of bread recipes and it works well, even in the bread machine although the results are a little denser. But the key advantage of this flour is the packaging which is great. I'm so fed up of normal flour paper bags ripping and covering the cupboard with flour or leaving snail-trails of flour as I carry them across the floor. This is a really tough packet & feels secure. I'd buy it over the competitor brands for that alone!

delicious wholemeal baking

We don't need to be wheat free but would always choose this over other flour and it has been used for fabulous biscuits cakes muffins and crumbles highly recommended and feels healthy

Best spelt flour available

I've tried all the spelt flours available and this is by far the best. The biscuits and crumbles I bake with it have the most wonderful crunchy texture. Other spelt flours have a slightly stale flavour whereas Sharpham Park tastes fresh. The white spelt flour makes a gorgeous soft loaf for fussy kids!
