An attempt at spelt pita

My son may have a wheat sensitivity, so we've been trying to keep wheat out of his diet. Good pita bread is an food for me - something I grew up eating. So I decided to try my hand at a spelt pita.

I asked my arabic grandmother to help me make some. She was used to refined wheat flour, and we were using a strange oven, so I'm not surprised it came out a bit odd. I did get a picture.

Hi Jay,

Watch out - if you don't know already, Spelt is like "ancient Wheat". I have a Wheat allergy (== trip to ER) and Spelt triggers it just the same.

Doves Farm has other flours you might want to try.

Cheers,
James

I have a severe wheat allergy, think anaphylaxis. But I do fine with spelt.
