WHEAT MONTANA's Prairie Gold
Try as I may I wasn't able to locate a local source of hard, spring, golden wheat at a reasonable price. The freight cost made ordering direct prohibitive. So, I had my nearby health-food-store-pill-pusher try to find any hard, spring wheat for me. I'll give them credit. They will try to find whatever I ask of them. Imagine my surprise when I picked up the wheat today and found that they had obtained a GOLDEN, hard, spring wheat for me - Prairie Gold as grown and sold by Wheat Montana. Here's their web site: http://wheatmontana.com/ I don't know how it compares to Walton's Golden 86, but Wheat Montana's Prairie Gold sounds just as good if not better.
I'll be milling some tonight and letting it age for at least 3 days before I bake some bread with it. I took some Prairie Gold and put it beside the hard, white, winter wheat that I've been using. The Prairie Gold has a slightly "brighter" look to it. I can hardly wait to use it. I'll keep you all posted. Has anyone else out there used any Prairie Gold wheat?
