SPELT PORRIDGE RECIPE FROM THE ARCHIVES OF THE SPNAISH MEDIEVAL CHEF
The Perfect Breakfast on a Cold Winter Day:
1 c. spelt berries (if flakes are available they are preferred as they do not have to be soaked overnight, take less time to cook, 3-4 mins, and make a creamier porridge)
salt to taste
1-2 c. warm water
1 tsp cinnamon
7-8 prunes chopped
2 c. water
honey, brown sugar, 1/2c unsweetened almonds, raw nuts, seeds, hemp nuts, fresh raspberries, blueberries, blackberries or strawberries
Grind spelt berries in a blender until coarse. Sprinkle with salt. Soak over night in warm water.
Cook spelt in 2 c. water, cinnamon and prunes. Simmer until creamy, 35-45 minutes (spelt flakes 10-15 minutes). Serve with honey and/or other topper.
