Spelt Bread

Do you see it?

Do you see the bite mark in the butter? The butter was spread so thickly and luxuriously that I left teeth marks when I bit into the bread. The butter was not scraped on, but slathered as I would with buttercream frosting on cake. O, joy! Such creamy lusciousness.

The bread, on the other hand…was different. The bread was made with spelt flour and I can’t tell whether it’s the flour or the recipe but…it tasted like dirt. Dirt! Food’s not supposed to taste like dirt! Unless you have dirt on it. After chewing some more, I made peace with the taste (perhaps instead of dirt, the bread, in fact, tastes more like….grains. It tasted like wholesome grains) but then picked on the rest of the bread. I came up with a heavy, dry loaf that was hard to swallow. Maybe it’s me. The colour’s quite gorgeous at least.

Anywho, just look at the butter. Look at the teeth mark in the butter…
