Trip to the mill.

Today I took a drive to my local flour mill and picked up 200 lbs of flour 150 lb of AP organic and 50 lb of super sprout, which I have never tried, should be good based on the reviews.

super sprout?  I'm guessing it is some kind of sprouted grain that have been dried and milled?  Sounds like it could be a real time saver.

You have to bake a lot!! Where do you store all of the flour? I want to buy in bulk but don't have a freezer. Happy baking!

1 bag of the AP flour is for me and half the super sprout is mine, that should last a good long while.  I usually do a couple loaves a week and a dessert once a week.  As far as storage I just put it in plastic bins with no problems, however, I usually only get 25 lbs at a time for myself so I may have to freeze some.

 

The super sprout is this:

The lady at the mill said it is milder than whole wheat and taste great, I'll do a loaf this weekend and find out myself.
