Ordering Rye Flour
Okay, I am really poor. I'm getting ready for a rough winter as both my boyfriend and I have seasonal jobs and haven't found any jobs to replace the ones we will loose come winter. Unemployment for us would be minimal to say the least, so we are trying to stock up on some goods now while we have money. I would like to pursue baking through winter and am trying to master Rye breads right now. My question is if anyone can recommend mills for buying bulk rye flours. Offordability is important but I'd preffer to pay a little more and get a GOOD rye flour. I don't even know where to start with this, tried searching the web and got a bunch of unrelated sites.
I've been trying to get straight the confusion of types of rye flours, and if I am not mistaken "Pumpernickle" or "Medium" Rye flours will have the most of the whole grain still in it? Thus more rye flavor? (I like a strong rye flavor)
And how does everyone do the ordering of bulk flours; do you ever order from overseas or is that too crazy expensive? Is it most desirable to find a local mill or are there certain mills in the US that produce more desirable rye flours?
Thanks for any help and/or redirection to other threads!
