||Soak organic spelt berries in water for 1 hour, or even overnight is fine.
||Use 1 1/2 cups (8 oz / 250 ml) of water per 1 cup (6 oz / 180g) of berries. Then, bring them to a boil in a saucepan. Use the soaking water, plus a little more fresh water if needed to cover them.
||When they have reached a boil, lower to a simmer, cover, and cook until tender, about 45 minutes, then drain. You can use the cooked spelt in any recipe that calls for rice: salads, soups, stews, etc.
