    Impressive

    I made some buttermilk biscuits with purple straw and the family was very impressed. The biscuits held together better than other flours. We really enjoyed them.

    I am pleased that Barton Springs Mill still supplies this traditional regional rice. Once a common staple, this rice is hard to find in specialty restaurants let alone grocery stores. Thanks for keeping this product readily available for those of us who love the taste of down- home Southern cooking.
