    Terrific tortillas!

    I used the Oaxacan green cornmeal and premium all purpose flour to make some terrific tortillas. I used a recipe from another source and would be really excited to try a recipe (hint, hint) from the fine folks at Barton Springs Mills.

    It was ground to fine for polenta for my taste.
    I’m sure it would be good for tortillas.

    I had to try green grits and I love to support biodiversity of any kind. So, when the grits were so pleasantly delicious… I will definitely purchase again!

    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.

    Yecora Rojo

    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
