    My Husband Gives 2 Thumbs Up!

    I made Oaxaca Green Grits for my husband last weekend and he loved them. I grew up in the south and had grits frequently. My hubby grew up in the NE and liked grits, but never loved them until now. The natural, rich corn aroma fills the kitchen while they cook and the taste is unlike any other grit/s we have eaten.

    Delicioso Polenta

    Blew my mind. Earthy, rich, almost nutty. Complex in-and-of-itself. Added a little butter, a little parm and romano. Paired with a red-wine rich, slow-cooked stracotta. But forget the rich beef. Everyone talked about the Oaxacan Green Corn Polenta.

    This green corn is awesome!!

    I made grits from the Oaxacan green corn and it was delicious. Nutty, tasty, and perfect texture. The color was amazing, too. My new favorite, though I love the Hopi blue corn, too.

    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!

    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.
