    Holy corn grits Batman!

    The Oaxacan Green Grits, I Riddle(r) you not! These are no Joke(r)! The flavor made me (Mr.) Freeze in my tacks and waddle around my kitchen like the Penguin! It made this Boy Wonder why i haven’t tried these before.

    Great grits

    These grits have such a good flavor makes the ones you buy at the regular grocery store seem like tasteless gravel . Can't decide which i like the best green or blue either is great

    A bit disappointed in the flavor but then I was raised in the NE and didn’t eat grits… plus I don’t eat bacon!

    Great grits!

    We loved these, I think the most flavorful grits I’ve ever made!

    My favorite grits so far

    The Oaxacan Green Grits are my favorite so far, followed by the blue followed by Bloody Butcher. I like them all a lot, but there’s something especially flavorful about the green grits. I make all of them with cheese and garlic powder.

    New Favorite Shirt

    This is my new favorite shirt. They are very soft and comfortable, although they are a tad bit long for my taste. Not a big deal by any means - I've had it two weeks and already worn it 3 or 4 times.

    I bought the Yecora Red to make some artisan sourdough & it came out so delicious. It has a wonderful nuttiness with great complex flavors. Just love it. Can’t wait to try some of the “00” sifts.

    Just what I wanted!

    After having blue cornbread on a trip to Colorado, I looked everywhere for the cornmeal to make it after returning home to Boston. Luckily I found it through Barton Springs Mill, and it arrived a few days after ordering. I've already used it several times for several different recipes. It's awesome, and exactly the flavor and quality I was looking for. Highly recommend!!

    What a taste

    I baked already two sourdough loafs with the flour and the taste and smell is amazing.

    Helped with colic from breast milk!

    I have three kids and breast fed all of them and I always had to watch my wheat intake otherwise my babies were gassy. I thought for whatever reason it was the gluten but then I learned that it’s actually how the wheat is made and what pesticides were used that upsets the babies and the mamas through the breast milk. So this third time around I have been searching for an organic wheat flour that wouldn’t upset my 6 month old’s tummy through the breast milk and I say success! I have baked muffins and cakes with this flour and have no complaints! If you want a fluffy result I’d recommend sifting as I would with any flour. Very happy and will buy again
