    My new favorite!

    I really love the quality of this flour. It's a soft grain and has a nice depth of flavor. Excellent for making sourdough bread.

    Why is this flour so amazing?

    This flour is so superlative in my sourdough biscuits that I can’t take the credit…why is this flour so versatile and amazing? I have experimented with it and it never disappoints!

    Nice Pizza and Dinner Rolls

    So far I've made pizza and dinner rolls (78% hydration) using Lagunitas beer (littleSumpinSumpin) which adds a hoppy flavor to the nutty flavor of the wheat.

    The hoppy flavor is only really present in the crust - - NoKnead style and refrigerator fermented for 5-7 days.

    So eager to make a 1/2 lb loaf next week | 350 Grams.

    The last two orders were incorrect. First order we ordered 3, 5lb All Purpose flower we got 2 1/2lb instead. We were charged the higher price. Second ordered we ordered 6, 5lb All Purpose flower and we got 6, 2 1/2lb instead.We were charged the higher price again. We would love a response to this problem. [****] Doyce

    These make the best hummus.

    Canned chickpeas just don’t measure up. These, plus Soom Tahini, plus a proprietary blend of citrus juice 🍋, olive oil, diced chilis 🌶 and spices, make the best hummus ever. And don’t even get me started on couscous salad. Happy and satisfied customer. Will absolutely order again.

    I’m enjoying using your flours again especially to make breads of Italian and French parameters and types of European flours, learning curves!

    Outstanding! Nutty flavor!

    Wow! I have every wheat grain Barton offers and several not offered but this is my favorite! This has a beautiful nutty taste unique to it. I wish berries were available!!! Outstanding and well worth your trying it.
