Spelt is a cereal grain in the wheat family that has been cultivated for centuries both in Europe and in the Middle East. Due to its similarities to wheat flour, it is a popular substitution (it does naturally contain gluten, as wheat does) and has a slightly sweet, nutty flavour. Spelt also has more protein and fewer calories than wheat flour, another reason it is becoming popular in baked goods.

The gluten in spelt flour does not behave the same way that wheat gluten does - it breaks down much more quickly
Try to work spelt flour as little as possible in order to avoid over-mixing it and making your finished product crumbly
This difference in gluten reaction also means that items baked with spelt flour will not rise as high as their wheat flour counterparts
Spelt is rich in vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, calcium, selenium, iron, manganese, zinc, vitamin E and B-complex vitamins
Aids in digestive functions and circulation; boosts immune function and builds strong bones
Decreases cholesterol and reduces high blood pressure; lowers blood pressure

Try substituting up to 25% of your recipes flour with spelt flour, until you are sure of the reaction of the recipe to the substitution
Trying spelt in recipes that do not rely on rise to work (like pie crust dough) is a good idea until you are comfortable working with it
