The spelt I got was from Bob's Red Mill and the expire date is 2 years. The muffins were wonderful and the entire family liked them too..always a plus.
    I used to eat Vita Spelt pasta all the time: both the whole grain and the stuff they processed to look like regular noodles. I always liked it a lot. It's not so easy to find where I live now, oddly enough.

    Please post the recipe for those muffins over in the recipes thread! I'd love to try spelt in something else.

    Spelt is an form of wheat, used mostly back in ancient times. It is not grown much here in the U.S. and costs a bit more than regular wheat. Here is a link to Bob's Red Mill where I purchased it.

    It's far enough away from wheat that many people with wheat allergies can eat it. I read somewhere that it's sort of like a grandfather to wheat.

    Thanks for posting the recipe

    Re: General Food Talk

    I had a Pesto Chicken Salad sandwich the other day that was FABULOUS. I want to recreate it. I am thiking that they put the chicken in a food processor as it was not chunky in big pieces, but more the same size. It also had mayo in it. So I'm thinking that I can just mix prepared pesto with some mayo and some chopped chicken. What do you guys think? You can mix Pesto with mayo right? Or do you think the oil in the Pesto willl separate from the mayo?

    I have never had pesto before. It's ugly, but I am adventurous. What's in it?

    Pesto is basically lots of basil, parsley, oil, pine nuts, garlic and parmesan cheese chopped together. It is delicious in pasta, in cream sauces, in mayo (yes MRD, you can), on salmon, etc. If you like any or all of those ingredients, you will love pesto.

    Prhoshay, it's FABULOUS. I can eat it on crackers and have!
    It is fabulous in everything I've had it in.

    Very garlicy and basil-y, you'll love it. I have had some very good jarred pestos, but nothing beats the fresh.
