Spelt wheat is mainly used as an ingredient for delicious soups. Full-bodied soups that are typical of winter require bean purée, tomato purée, all the scents of the garden and some pork rinds for flavour during cooking. A lighter spelt soup, on the other hand, is made with seasonal vegetables added with borlotti beans. However, spelt wheat has a flavour that goes well with all kinds of ingredients: from porcini mushrooms to fish to make tasty farrotti, it's also an ideal base for preparing fresh summer salads. Savoury torta di farro salato made with ricotta and pecorino is one of the most typical recipes of the Garfagnana, and finally, for lovers of something sweet, budino di farro is not to be missed.
