    Wow

    These are the best grits I’ve ever had. Just bought an insta pot and the grits were the first recipe I tried. I could eat them every day! Ordering more now!

    Haven't used it yet, just the Oaxacan cornmeal. Made your recipe for cornbread except I used rouge in place of ap with it.

    Lovely Bowl of Polenta

    It might sound cheesy, but I think we often eat with our eyes first, taking in every color and texture of our food before it ever hits our mouths. This makes for the loveliest bowl of polenta, especially when topped with a tangle of seasonal veggies.

    The flour is incredible! The bread we’ve baked was delicious and testy!

    Excellent for sourdough!

    I’ve been using this for sourdough pizza crusts and they turn out awesome!

    New pizza staple

    I'll never be able to make pizza without this flour ever again. It was so easy to work with, and there were more subtle flavors than I even knew what to do with. I found myself using fewer toppings so I could taste the dough more (and up until now pizza dough was just a vehicle for toppings).

    Beautiful flour. Made delicious sourdough. Tried the 00 think I’ll try regular next time for a heartier bread. Looking forward to trying other flours
