Original distribution area
Green spelled is the half-ripe form of spelled and is harvested early and then artificially dried. This method was already used in 1660 on building land in the North Baden region. Back then, the farmers harvested the spelled a little earlier so as not to lose the harvest during periods of bad weather. Since green spelled is very tasty, it soon became a tradition. Nowadays, the term “Franconian Green Kernel” is protected and is also called “Badischer Reis”.

Green spelled: taste
Since green spelled is dried over a wood fire (the so-called kiln), it has a spicy, smoky taste. That’s why it’s not so good for sweet dishes. However, green spell is an excellent addition to hearty dishes. Green spelled is particularly popular with soups and salads. The ancient grain is also ideal in the form of a patty as a side dish.
