Whole Rye Kernels at Whole Foods Market
I dropped by Whole Foods Market today here in Oklahoma. I went in looking for Whole Rye Kernels and wasn't expecting to find them. To my surprise they have them and at an excellent price: 99 cents a pound if I recall--or maybe more but whatever price it was I thought it was pretty fair at the time. I picked up three pounds for some pumpernickel bread. I'll be smashing, chopping, grinding and soaking portions of them myself as I couldn't find any chopped or cracked kernels there at the store.
I also picked up my first King Arthur Flours at like $4.39 a 5lb bag: Bread, All Purpose, and Whole Wheat flours. Unfortnuately they did not have any King Arthur Rye flour there or else I would of bought it; (Hodgson Mill Rye seems really good so I'll just stick with it.)
They also had some whole spelt kernels there as well as ground up spelt. I bought a pound of the spelt kernels in case I ever want to add it to a loaf. I don't have any loaf in mind but it just seemed cool to buy this ancient wheat :)
