To prepare, bring 1 part of rinsed spelt grains and 3 parts water/stock/liquid to the boil, and then cover, reduce heat and allow to simmer for about an hour until the grains are tender but chewy. Add more (warm) liquid if needed. The longer the cook time, the more tender the spelt berries will be.
