Spelt Pastry - Using Ghee instead of butter?
I would like to make pastry but will have to make a few 'twists' in the recipe.
I am unable to have modern wheat but can have spelt and khorasan. I am also unable to have butter, butter substitutes or margarine, but can have Ghee (clarified butter).
Anyway I was thinking of making the pastry for pies and vegetable triangles using spelt flour and was wondering whether I could substitute ghee instead of butter in the recipe?
If so do I substitute 1:1 or how much?
Has anyone tried making pastry using ghee and what were your experiences?
The other alternative is just using olive oil but not sure that this would even work??
