I call this Bread Emmerich. The name says it all: Emmer rich. And so is the bread: 50% freshly milled whole emmer flour in combination with spelt flour makes this bread so delicious. The name “Emmerich” has a second meaning, too. It is the name of a city in north Rhine Westphalia. And I often thought that this city needs its own Emmer bread when I read its name.
After the last rye breads I needed a mild bread for my stomach and so I choose as spelt variant of the Sweet Starter as preferment. The forgotten bag with emmer I found in the storage seemed perfect for me. And the bread turned out as delicious as I hope it would. It taste especially good in combination with honey or with a mild goat cheese.
