Flour from Whole Grain Connection, Mountain View Farmers' Market, CA

May 27, 2011 - 2:53pm -- Polish Babka


I was wondering if any of you tried the whole wheat flour from the Whole Grain Connection. They sell Sonora and Emmer whole wheat organic flour.  They also have malted wheat flour. 

I have some recipes that call specifically for freshly ground whole wheat flour and that one could keep up to the challange.

Any tips, experiences?

Thanks a lot.

Help! I have a question about grain.

Hi all,

As a result of my 9 yr old's interest in ancient Egypt, we're trying to re-create the bread they baked. After one disaster involving whole spelt (the disaster was my mess-up, not the spelt's!), we did a little more research and found that, in addition to my overproofing, we had the wrong grain. What we should be using is emmer wheat, not spelt.
