What is Spelt?
Spelt is an Ancient Grain, believed to have been cultivated since 5000BC. And this is good, because unlike a lot of our modern wheats it has not been genetically modified.
It does contain some gluten, but the gluten has not been altered, it is natural, therefore more soluble. It is the unnatural, large quantities of gluten in modern flours that our bodies often react to. Spelt has a gorgeous, nutty flavour.
What is the best way to cook Northern Pasta?
Fill a large saucepan with lots of water & bring to the boil. Add a large pinch of salt (we want salty-seawater) & then add your pasta following the timings on the bag. Taste your pasta before the time is up for the best al dente bite. Drain in a colander. be sure to keep some cooking water. Toss in your delicious sauce adding the cooking water as needed to coat your pasta perfectly.

About Northern Pasta Co.
Northern Pasta Co are a husband & wife team, on a mission to create out of this world pasta while celebrating British farmers & incredible British grains. Their desire for delicious, British pasta that celebrates British farming, cares for the planet & takes care of our gut-health led them to Northern Pasta Co.
They craft all their pasta themselves from their Northern Pasta HQ on the outskirts of the Lake District. Crafting in small batches means each pasta piece gets the love it deserves. The Spelt they use is grown using regenerative farming methods that nurture biodiversity, soil-heath and ecosystems. Their award-winning British Pasta is created using traditional Italian methods. All their shapes are extruded through Italian Bronze Dies which is why their pasta has such incredible texture, that rough surface giving it perfect pasta sauce holding capabilities.
Northern Pasta is slow dried to develop flavour & texture while not burning the starch. This means the pasta is lighter & for some is easier to digest.
