Jo's Story

I read the labels on what I buy in the grocery store and I didn't much care for all the "extra" things I found in the packaged tortillas so I decided to make an executive decision and make my own. Now I'm so glad I did.

Ingredients

2 c
spelt flour
1 tsp
celtic sea salt
1 1/2 tsp
aluminum free baking soda
3/4 c
filtered hot water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat up your cast iron fry pan or tortilla grill on high heat. The grill has to be very hot.
Mix all the ingredients together well.
2
Cover in a bowl, let sit in a warm place for 20 minutes.
3
Remove from the bowl and form into 8 equal sized balls. Let sit in a warm place for 20 minutes.
4
When time is up remove one ball at a time and roll out in a thin circle.
5
Put the rolled out tortilla on the grill and heat until you see bubbles on top of the tortilla. Check underneath to make sure it's not burning.
6
You should see little dark bubbles under the cooking tortilla, flip it over and cook for another 35-45 seconds or if smoke appears.
7
Repeat with each tortilla. Store them in a plastic bag wrapped in a moist paper towel. These will dry out if not kept moist.
8
Refrigerate in the bag with the moist paper towels until you are ready to serve. You can freeze these but remove the paper towel if you do.
9
When you serve these, top with whatever you enjoy on a tortilla, roll up and enjoy.
