How's That Spelt (Organic Spelt Flour)
This heritage grain was the predominant grain throughout Europe around the bronze age. It was originally cultivated in the Middle East and slowly spread across Europe. In those regions, it has been harvested for over 7,000 years. It was the grain of choice thanks to cold weather tolerance and long storage life most likely due to its hull. It was brought to the Americas in the late 1800’s but it fell out of favour to modern wheat due to its lower protein.
Its light and fluffy texture makes a great addition to everyday baking. It’s beautiful pale-yellow colour with flecks of red gives a distinct appearance to your baked goods. Great as an additional flour to breads, this grain will bring a new dimension in your recipes

1847 Stone Milling's Commitment to the Planet:
Not every flour starts with planting a tree, but thanks to their 100% solar powered mill 1847 is doing just that. The carbon offset from their solar power alone is equivalent to planting 2 trees every day, by the end of the year that is equivalent to saving 40 acres of Canadian forest. Your baking will taste even better when you know the flour behind it is keeping our planet healthy. We hope you also enjoy their 100% compostable flour bags, which are diverting plastic from the landfill or ocean. They also repurpose all of the bran and wheat chaff from the milling process by working with local farmers to repurpose it as animal food or bedding – no bull!
