“This is my Grandad's recipe for bread, normally it calls for half white flour and half whole wheat flour, but as my son has a wheat allergy, I substituted both flours for Spelt flour. Spelt flour is an ancient grain and can be used in place of white flour. It can be found in most Health food stores. Enjoy! Editor's Note: Spelt is an ancient wheat that has recently been marketed as safe for wheat-allergic individuals. Wheat-allergic patients can react to spelt as they do to common wheat. Please consult with your health care provider to ensure spelt is appropriate for you.”
