German to English Translation of Roggenschrot/Weizenschrot

Hello Fresh Loaf Community,

I am interested in baking a German Vollkorn Brot and I have a recipe, however, I am not sure of the Canadian equivalent of the grains called for in the recipe.  Can you help?

grober Roggenschrot und Weizenschrot

Thank you very much,

Ossie

rogge = rye, weize = wheat, schrot = wholemeal (not 100% sure, though)

Therefore, grosser Roggenschrot un Weizenschrot is probably coarsely ground rye meal and wheat meal.

A member who can certainly give you the correct translation is Karin (nick = hanseata).

Vollkorn Brot = whole meal bread.

grober Roggenschrot und Weizenschrot = coarse rye groats and wheat groats

groats are hulled or coarse grain.

So, they are talking about coarse ground rye flour and coarse ground whole wheat flour.

Thank you both for your information.  Very helpful; now I have a better understanding of what the recipe is calling for.

Schrot - crushed/chopped grain.

German bakers have schrot in 3 sizes: Grob/Large, Mittel/Medium and Fein/Small size.

Use German Google to see some pictures.

Hi Karin, your flour translation is an AWESOME resource link!  Thank you.  I've been trying to bake the German Rolls as well, and as you describe, the crumb structure just wasn't the same as in Germany.  My boyfriend is from Munich and loves his Broetchen, but when he visits me here in Kanada, is disappointed by the softness of our rolls.  I'll try again with a softer wheat flour.  Anyways, thanks for the link to your blog and the offer of translation of German Recipes.  PS... I also live on a beautiful island.  Manitoulin Island in the middle of Lake Huron, northern Ontario.  Ossie
