Pastry For Quiche
Since there are many people who are wheat intolerant, I wanted to try makingsome pastry from spelt flour. Whilst this is not suitable for people on agluten free diet, it is often good for people with a wheat intolerance.The pastry was made in exactly the same way as shortcrust pastry made fromwheat flour and the result was really good. There are some reasons other thanwheat intolerance too why people might choose spelt flour over wheat flour.Spelt flour is a little more expensive than wheat flour and is often organic.It is now widely available in large supermarkets and also in local food storesand health shops.
