Three-minute spelt bread

Gilchesters grow and mill their own organic grain, including spelt, in Northumberland.

Spelt is an ancient form of wheat that is high in protein and vitamins B and E. It is also digestible by some people with sensitivity to modern wheat. Spelt is an excellent bread making flour, with good quality gluten and an intense flavour.
